PARKERSBURG — Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery, which has nine offices in Kentucky and West Virginia including in Parkersburg, is collecting non-perishable canned foods through Aug. 28.
The collections will be donated to local food banks.
Jack Krajekian, DMD, a partner in Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery, invites patients and the general public to drop off canned foods such as soup, chili, stews, canned meat or tuna, assorted vegetables and beans) at any of the company’s offices throughout West Virginia and Ashland, Ky.
Mountain State Oral and Facial Surgery will match donations by purchasing an equal number of canned goods to double the effort to meet local food needs, he said.
