Donated items included vegetables, fruits, meats, milk, juices, tea, cheese and cereal. In the last three years, Cedar Point has given more than $13,000 in food products to local organizations. "We are extremely grateful for these donations and Cedar Point's continued support of the Victory Temple Soup Kitchen and the needy people in the area," said Rev. Lonnie R. Walters, senior pastor of the Victory Temple Church. "These gifts will help us provide much-needed assistance to our less fortunate neighbors." During the season, Cedar Point employees collect and turn in any money found along the midway, beneath the rides and in the park's water attractions to the Loose Change Fund. "Cedar Point and its employees are very concerned about the people of our community," said John Hildebrandt, vice president and general manager of Cedar Point. "These organizations provide a very important service. They help people in need during these difficult times."
