Toledo Food Bank wishes to thank all the volunteers who gave their time and effort to make this year’s Kid’s Shopping Holiday last Saturday a success! Special thanks to all those who donated gifts, especially S.L.C. Liquidation for their considerable generosity in support of this event.
All ages from toddlers to teens participated, aided by volunteers at tables displaying gift items for women, men, and a table with combined gifts suitable for both. Gloves and coffee or tea mugs were popular gifts, and bird houses “flew off the shelves.”
Looking ahead: the Food Bank notes personal care items are in short supply right now, especially women’s sanitary goods (sealed boxes/packages only). Also low on stock: pet food & supplies, plus baby diapers, formula and baby food.
ISO:* Supporters to give an hour or two in the warehouse following the Annual Walk N’ Knock event December 2nd to process donations collected by neighborhood volunteers. Students seeking to fulfill their Community Service hours would be warmly welcomed.
ISO:* Social Media specialist to establish and maintain a page on social media, post weekly updates and news of Toledo Food Bank. Requires less than one hour weekly after initial setup. This is a volunteer position. Students welcomed. Apply during open hours (see Holiday Schedule above).
ISO:* Large cargo trailer to store shelving and other durable goods. Weather-tight and clean - no mildew, oil, or unsafe conditions. Any size up to 40’. To donate, contact email@example.com for details.
Insider news: Toledo Food Bank was founded by a Toledo High School student 30 years ago, and an event commemorating this anniversary is under consideration now in early 2018. Stay tuned for more info.

Toledo School Board and Community to Explore McCleary Decision
TOLEDO November 13, 2017—The Toledo School Board is inviting the community to attend a special board meeting on December 5, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. at Toledo High School. Cal Brodie, CFO for Capital Region ESD will present on the implications of HB 2242 “the McCleary decision”. This presentation will cover the reasons why HB 2242 was needed and what the legislation means for the Toledo School District.
Throughout the presentation, community members will be invited to engage with individual board members who will serve as “table leaders”.
“The goal of the meeting is to help the board and community members understand the changes that will be coming as a result of the legislation and to use that information to make decisions about future school district proposals.”, according to superintendent Chris Rust. “There is a lot of confusion and misinformation circulating. Now that a decision on the capital bond is behind us, it is a good time for people to think about
what will be happening and what that might mean in the future.”
The Toledo School District had a $12.9 million bond on the November ballot that was narrowly defeated. The board is looking at options and next steps. This meeting will encourage community members to learn and give input to the board as they conduct their deliberations.
