AUSTINTOWN — The Greenwood Extra Mile Giveaway will reward one donor who gave to either the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley or the United Way of Trumbull County during their 2020 campaigns. 

In past years, the event was held in the showroom at Greenwood Chevrolet in Austintown, 4695 Mahoning Ave., but due to Covid-19 safety precautions, this year’s event will be virtual and will air on WYTV Channel 33 at 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Ten finalists, five from each United Way, will join Greg Greenwood, owner of Greenwood Chevrolet, Bob Hannon, president of United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley, and Ginny Pasha, president of United Way of Trumbull County, for the virtual event. 

The finalists will be randomly placed in order to choose one of 10 numbered keys. A representative from the United Way will act as a proxy for each finalist at the dealership. The finalist who picks the key that starts a 2020 Chevrolet Trax will get to choose between keeping the vehicle or $15,000 in cash, courtesy of Greenwood Chevrolet.

“Our local United Ways rely heavily on individual donor contributions given through workplace campaigns conducted at many sites throughout our Valley,” Greenwood said in a news release. “There is no question that the Extra Mile car or cash giveaway is an excellent incentive for first-time givers and for those existing givers to step up their weekly gifts to the $5 a week level to be eligible for the drawing.”

Check Out Hunger
campaign begins today

YOUNGSTOWN — Beginning today, customers can help provide food to those in need by donating $1, $5 or $10 at all Giant Eagle locations in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

During Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley’s Check Out Hunger campaign, which runs through April 3, customers’ donations will be added to their grocery bills.

“Giant Eagle stores in our community raised almost $111,000 through Check Out Hunger’s original end date of April 17, 2020, which enabled the food bank to provide 667,069 meals,” Michael Iberis, executive director of Second Harvest Food Bank, said in a news release. “We simply could not do what we do without the ongoing support of great friends like Giant Eagle.”
