KMK Metals Recycling staff orgainise food collection for Ken Smollen appeal

   Mon, 30th Nov, 2020

For the second year in a row, staff at KMK Metals Recycling have organised a large collection of non-perishable food for the Ken Smollen appeal. 

Food poverty campaigner Ken Smollen has been collecting and distributing food to people in need across the midlands, since 2016, with close to 900 families accepting regular food packages. This number continues to grow with the fallout from the Covid-19 pandemic and increased unemployment. 

KMK Metals Recycling staff from the Tullamore and Kilbeggan facilities brought in shopping bags full of food donations which were topped up through funds provided by management, resulting in an impressive van-load of food and Christmas treats.

Max Kyck, General Manager of KMK Metals Recycling, commented: "Our staff are very generous, no matter what appeal we present them with from the GOAL Jersey Day and Daffodil Day to Darkness Into Light to name a few. However this year and last year it was individual staff members who came up with the idea and organised the food collection for the very worthy Ken Smollen Food Appeal. We couldn't be more proud of our team."
