The AMLA "Show Your Love" Food Drive

AMLA

Hunger in Northeast Ohio is a bigger issue than most people think. Cuyahoga County had the highest number of food insecure residents in the state of Ohio in 2013, at approximately 241,400 individuals. Cuyahoga County was also home to the largest number of food insecure children in the state of Ohio, at 66,870 children, according to the Cleveland Food Bank (see more at: www.greaterclevelandfoodbank.org). By partnering with local groups in the fight against hunger, the American Mutual Life Association (AMLA) wants to do something about that.

The AMLA is a fraternal benefit society domiciled in Northeast Ohio. The AMLA is hosting the AMLA Show Your Love Food Drive to help those in need this holiday season. AMLA Members and friends are encouraged to participate. Please donate non-perishable food items. Our goal is to collect more than 1,000 pounds of food (or other items). An average can of soup is 10.5 ounces, which means we need more than 1400 cans!

Food contributions can be made at monthly AMLA Lodge Meetings, dropped off at the AMLA Home Office, or taken to an official drop-off location like:
