Massie's Martial Arts Works to KO Hunger

AUSTIN, Texas — Tae kwon do students at Massie’s Martial Arts recently teamed up with KOHunger.com to sponsor a food drive to support local food banks. They were able to collect over 175 pounds of food in just two weeks.

“We put this food drive together on very short notice, and it has been a great success. It just goes to show that you don’t need much in the way of organization to pull something like this off - all you really need are a bunch of people who are willing to chip in and help, said Michael Massie, owner of Massie's Martial Arts.

Massie’s Martial Arts will continue to collect non-perishable food items and personal grooming items through Dec. 22. Donations can be dropped off at the school's Hutto location at 409 West Front St. #230 in Hutto, Texas.

Massie’s Martial Arts has served Williamson County, Texas, for over 14 years, offering quality martial arts instruction for children and adults.

KOHunger.com is an effort to bring martial arts instructors, fighters, and coaches together to help end world hunger.

Mr. Massie is right that even a small amount of organization can achieve big results when people are committed to doing good. Hopefully other martial arts schools across the country will follow Massie's lead.
