EVENT DATE: Mar 02, 2010
As Michigan families struggle to weather the state's troubled economy, the demand on community food banks is higher than ever. This year's telethon benefiting FBCM will dedicate all proceeds to feed Michigan residents in critical need throughout the state. The FBCM also supports Michigan farmers by working with them to provide fresh produce to those in need. The team and entire Palace Sports & Entertainment organization is asking for the support of the Pistons community.
"The Food Bank Council of Michigan has the ability to stretch minimal donations into maximum efforts," said PS&E President and CEO Tom Wilson. "Just $10 feeds a family for a week; $100 provides a student a backpack that can be refilled throughout the school year and $200 feeds a senior for an entire year. We have the opportunity this year to do something great for our friends and neighbors right here in Michigan."
