FOOD DONATIONS HIT 1,000 LBS

 
(July 27) — In less than four months, fans of the York Revolution have donated nearly 1,000 lbs. of non-perishable food items to the York County Food Bank in exchange for free tickets to Monday night games. Team officials estimate the Hunger Free Mondays food drive will pass the half-ton mark this Monday, July 31.
 
United Fiber & Data, a partner in the drive along with the Revolution and YRK Creative, will donate 50 cents to the Food Bank for each pound of food donated at PeoplesBank Park.
 
“In typical fashion, Revolution fans have again stepped up to support their team and their community,” said Revolution President Eric Menzer. “The people of this city and the surrounding area have been answering the call and reaching out to neighbors in need all season. With just two Monday games left, we’re asking all of York County to bring their donations to PeoplesBank Park and let us thank them and reward them with a free Revs game.”
 
Donations can be dropped off at the Apple Chevrolet Ticket Office Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and on game days. Fans making a donation will receive tickets to one of the Revolution’s two remaining Monday home games, July 31 and August 21.
 
The Food Bank estimates that approximately 50,000 York County residents, including 17,000 children, do not have a consistent supply of and access to nutritious food.
 
The Hunger Free Mondays initiative features logos and other materials designed by the staff of YRK Creative, publishers of YRK Magazine. YRK Creative also developed moving profiles of Food Bank beneficiaries that have been featured in several editions of the Revolution’s playbill given to fans at each game.
