Two Local Companies Make the Holidays Sweeter with 100lb Candy Donation to the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank

Knoch Corporation, a construction company serving northeast Ohio and headquartered in North Canton, has partnered with Sugar Rush, a specialty candy store that recently opened in Kent, to donate over one hundred pounds of candy to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

“Knoch is thrilled to be working with Sugar Rush on the donation to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. Candy is a foundational aspect of the holidays, and we are happy to ensure that every child has that experience. Although candy is not a staple food group, it does make everyone’s day a little better! That is the goal of this donation," said Chuck Fenske, vice president of business development and marketing for Knoch.

"Having lived in this region for our entire lives, and as alumni of KSU, we are happy to contribute to the economic growth in downtown Kent. We are equally pleased to have the opportunity to team up with a well established company to spread some more joy this holiday season," said Liz Woods, owner of Sugar Rush.

Knoch and Sugar Rush chose to use the candy store's existing suppliers to procure over 4,000 pieces of candy. According to Woods, "The order was so large that we cleared out the stock of some candy at our supplier's distribution centers in two separate states."
