CLEVELAND, Ohio — About 2,000 items were collected for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank Saturday during the controversial Perfect Season Parade 2.0.
That’s on top of nearly $15,000 that was also raised for the agency, according to parade officials.
About 75 percent of the items were canned goods, and the rest were boxed foods or other food-related items. Blankets and monetary donations were also collected.
Parade officials got rid of expired, half-eaten and opened foods that parade-goers attempted to donate.
