PKSA Leads the “Force Against Hunger”

Since 2010, PKSA Karate Port Huron, part of Professional Karate Schools of America, has been training students in not only martial arts but in overall excellence. They make a huge impact on the community with their annual fundraisers that mix fun with giving back.  

Master Michael Weir, who operates PKSA Port Huron, said that his dojang has been raising money for food baskets since 2010. They have put together over 1000 food baskets over the years. 

PKSA Karate Port Huron partners with Community Action, United Way, and Goodwill, and have also reached out to homeless veterans in St. Clair County to distribute food baskets. The baskets contain the complete ingredients for a turkey dinner, including a full 10-pound turkey, 10 pounds of potatoes, and a pumpkin pie.  

2021 Event

The public can get involved in putting together the baskets and also have a little fun. This year’s event is called “The Force Against Hunger” and has a Star Wars theme. The immersive experience takes participants into the Star Wars universe. A suggested $20 donation goes toward the food basket project. Mission times are scheduled every 15 minutes and Star Wars characters will be making appearances throughout the day for one-of-a-kind photo ops.  

“The Force Against Hunger” is planned for November 5th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the PKSA location at 2700 Pine Grove, Suite 14, in Port Huron. The Dojang (karate studio) is in the Port Huron Music Center Building near the north entrance.
