Aikido’Ka holds ‘We Can … Drive Through 2011’ for food bank
October 4, 2011
Aikido’Ka is holding its fourth annual can drive for the Nevada County Food Bank from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday at the corner of Broad and Union streets in Nevada City.
In the three past drive throughs, Aikido’Ka raised approximately $8,100 and 5,400 pounds of food for the Food Bank. This year, the problem of hunger in our community continues to grow and the Food Bank is as busy as ever.
We Can … Drive Through 2011 is simple: Drive to the bottom of Broad Street where volunteers will be accepting donations (rain or shine). Donations the Food Bank can use most include cans or bags of food, money and personal hygiene products.
For a more complete list of the Food Bank’s needs, please check our We Can … Drive Through 3 web page at JoinAikido.com/we-can-drive-through-2011/.
Aikido’Ka is training peaceful warriors and community leaders through its Project Based Leadership programs. At Aikido’Ka, students perform community service as part of their martial arts and leadership training.
Aikido is unique among martial arts by striving for twin goals – practicing effective self-defense while hurting no one. Aikido’Ka holds classes for all ages and physical condition.
