Weis Mar­kets, cus­tomers do­nate $250K to hur­ri­cane re­lief

At a time of need, Weis Mar­kets and its cus­tomers are do­nat­ing $250,000 to the Amer­i­can Red Cross’s hur­ri­cane re­lief ef­forts, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

“We are grate­ful to our cus­tomers for their gen­eros­ity dur­ing a na­tional cri­sis and know their do­na­tions will help the Amer­i­can Red Cross’s ur­gent re­lief work in Texas and Louisiana, and we’re ex­tremely proud of our as­so­ciates who en­thu­si­as­ti­cally sup­ported the cam­paign, gen­er­at­ing more than $223,000 in cus­tomer do­na­tions in seven days,” said Weis Mar­kets’ chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer Kurt Scher­tle, in the re­lease.

Weis Mar­kets’ as­so­ciates raised the cus­tomer do­na­tions dur­ing the first week of their an­nual Fight Hunger cam­paign by giv­ing cus­tomers the op­tion to round up their or­ders or to pur­chase $1, $4 or $10 vouch­ers to be do­nated to Amer­i­can Red Cross’s Hur­ri­cane Har­vey re­lief ef­forts in Texas and Louisiana. The $223,000 raised from gen­er­ous cus­tomer do­na­tions will be com­ple­mented by a $27,000 cor­po­rate donation from Weis Mar­kets to total $250,000, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.

“Given the ur­gent need, we are des­ig­nat­ing our cor­po­rate donation to re­lief ef­forts in Texas, Louisiana, Flor­ida and other parts of the south which were af­fected by Hur­ri­canes Har­vey and Irma,” Scher­tle said, in the re­lease.

On Sept. 7, the Fight Hunger Cam­paign tran­si­tioned back to a lo­cal fo­cus through Oct. 4, help­ing cus­tomers to sup­port their lo­cal food banks through mon­e­tary and food do­na­tions. In ad­di­tion to round­ing up their or­ders and pur­chas­ing vouch­ers, cus­tomers can pay $4 to do­nate Weis Qual­ity milk to lo­cal food banks, drop off non-per­ish­able goods at the des­ig­nated bins near the en­trance of Weis Mar­kets stores, and do­nate on­line at WeisMar­kets.com/ FightHunger, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.

Cur­rently in its tenth year, the Fight Hunger cam­paign raises aware­ness of food in­se­cu­rity and pro­vides food and do­na­tions to more than 150 lo­cal food banks and emer­gency food providers across seven states in Weis Mar­kets’ 204-store ser­vice area, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease.
