Columbia, SC, October 27, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Samurai Karate Studio is holding their second annual canned food drive to support Harvest Hope Food Bank, a local food bank that serves the greater Columbia area that helps to feed the poor and homeless.
Sensei Chris Feldt, owner and chief instructor for Samurai Karate noted, "This is one of our biggest community events for the year. Harvest Hope Food Bank does amazing work and I want to help support them as much as possible!"
To support this effort, Sensei Feldt is offering the SKS student who donates the most canned food a free private lesson.
"We are also inviting the general public to participate in this food drive," commented Feldt, "anyone who donates 20 canned food items or more, will be invited to train Free for a whole month! That is a $130.00 value!"
"Community service plays a big role in our curriculum," stated Feldt, "Every student has to complete some form of community service as part of their rank requirements. I like to run this project, as a kick off to the holiday season and lots of good deeds performed by my students!"
The food drive will continue between now and the Thanksgiving Holiday.
Samurai Karate Studio teaches a traditional style of Japanese karate to children and adults, beginning at age 3.
