Armstrong set to Avenge Hunger

TAKING ACTION: For the third year, Armstrong will be hosting Avenge Hunger Month through Oct. 31, collecting nonperishable food and monetary donations for Second Harvest Food Bank as part of the ongoing Breaking Bread initiative. September is National Hunger Action Month, and the need for food is increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic. People can make donations at Sparkle Markets and Giant Eagle supermarkets in Canfield and Poland, the Davis Center YMCA and the community booth at the Eastwood Mall. Drive-thru donations will be accepted 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Boardman Park and Sept. 25 at Chili’s restaurant in front of Southern Park Mall in Boardman.

Armstrong also is hosting an Avenge Hunger virtual 5K walk. Participants can run, walk, treadmill or bike to any location they choose. To register, visit
