Mark Mitchell's Selfless Elf Page- Thanks for Supporting Me!
This is the 5th year for the Selfless Elf 5K race, and I plan to run again. It also means I am seeking support to sponsor me in the race. Last year I collected more than $1,000 in donations and hope to again this year.
This year has brought several changes for me at the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. While continuing to manage food safety, personnel safety, security, emergency preparedness and disaster response, I now also manage shipping & receiving. I supervise a great team of six foodbankers who do an outstanding job receiving our food products.
I have also been selected to serve as a mentor for three other food banks (Atlanta Community Food Bank; Eastern Illinois Food Bank, Urbana, IL; and Good Shepherd Food Bank, Auburn, ME) in the Feeding America Allstate Disaster Capacity Program. I will be assisting these food banks over the next year while they seek to strengthen their disaster response procedures.
The foodbank is going to distribute more than 30 million pounds for the first time in our history this year. Amazingly close to 75% of this food goes out absolutely free thanks to your support. This is the only time during the year that I ask friends, family and colleagues for support for the foodbank. I hope you will consider sponsoring me this year. Thank you and have a joyous holiday season.
