We Can . . . Drive Through 3 is tomorrow from 11 – 6! Here’s the info:
On Saturday, November 7, from 11 am – 6 pm, at the corner of Broad and Union Streets in Nevada City, Aikido’Ka is holding its third annual can drive for the Nevada County Food Bank.
Aikido’Ka held its first drive in 2007 – dubbed We Can . . . Drive Through – in response to the Food Bank’s dire food shortage. On October 27, 2007, at the bottom of Broad Street in Nevada City the community raised approximately $2,500 in cash and over 1,600 pounds of non-perishable food. Last year, Aikido’Ka held We Can . . . Drive Through 2 and the community raised over $2,800 in cash and 2,200 pounds of food! This year, the problem of hunger in our community continues to grow and the Food Bank is busier than ever.
We Can . . . Drive Through 3 is simple: Drive to the bottom of Broad Street where volunteers will be accepting donations (rain or shine). Donations the Food Bank wants 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/special_events.html.
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. To volunteer or for more information about We Can . . . Drive Through 3, please call Aikido’Ka Chief Instructor Frank Bloksberg at (530) 273-2727 or send him an email.
See you tomorrow!
