Toledo Jeep Fest, Columbia Gas partner to pack 400 meals for northwest Ohio kids

Toledo Jeep Fest isn’t just an event to show off all things Jeep. Organizers and one of the event sponsors, Columbia Gas, wanted to make sure a charitable aspect was incorporated as well.

According to WTOL 11, the groups partnered with Connecting Kids to Meals to put together weekend food packs before the start of school next week.

“That’s what we wanted to do,” Columbia Gas Public Affairs Manager Cheri Pastula said. “When we heard about the work that they are doing to feed so many kids in northwest Ohio, our employees jumped at the chance to be able to help out, volunteer and help support those kids to make sure they have food in their homes.”

After all the meals were packed, volunteers loaded them into Jeeps to be dropped off at the Kent and Lagrange Branch libraries.
