Weis Markets has made a donation of $60,000 to Helping Harvest in Spring Township as part of the company’s Fight Hunger program to support local food banks.
The two-week program, beginning in November, gave Weis customers across its seven-state market area the option of rounding up their orders or purchasing $1, $3, $5 or $10 vouchers to help support families in need in their communities. It also ran the program in September.
“Every year, we look forward to partnering with our generous customers to give back to the communities we serve,” said Weis Markets Vice President of Advertising & Marketing Ron Bonacci.
“This total represents combined customer and company donations. It is the perfect way to start 2022 and celebrate the season of giving. We are grateful to our customers and to Helping Harvest for their service to the community.”
The Fight Hunger campaign, which began in 2008, has raised more than $1.3 million in 2021 and over $5 million since 2008.
