The Akron-Canton Foodbank is looking for donations to assist Texas foodbanks in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The items requested include hand-held snacks, ready-to-eat canned goods, cleaning supplies and hygiene products.

Michael Wilson is the foodbank’s director of marketing and communications.

“(The effort) was just re-enforced by the dozens of calls that we were receiving from our network, from our donors, from local community members who were also wanting to get involved.”

The foodbank is accepting donations this entire week. It will also be sending two truckloads of its own inventory to the Houston-area.
