Harris Teeter Shoppers Gave Over $8K
WNC Harris Teeter Customers Donate
Over $8,000 to MANNA FoodBank
Monetary Gifts Equal 24,000 Meals
for Those Struggling with Hunger
ASHEVILLE, N.C. (January 8, 2014) Harris Teeter and MANNA FoodBank would like to extend a sincere thank you to its generous shoppers who donated over $8,000 during the company’s Harvest Feast Food Drive and Donation Card Campaign. The campaign ran during the month of November in all Harris Teeter stores, and customers purchased $1, $5 or $20 donation cards.
Harris Teeter recognizes that hunger affects millions of Americans including hard-working adults, children and seniors, and the Company offered its customers a convenient way to help fight hunger through participation in the donation card campaign. The financial and in-kind contributions made by Harris Teeter customers will go a long way toward helping MANNA supply food and grocery products to the communities they serve.
“These cold winter months can mean high heating bills for many people whose budgets are already stretched to the limit,” said MANNA FoodBank Executive Director Cindy Threlkeld. “This donation will help provide important staples for the people we serve- children, families and seniors. We appreciate our partnership with Harris Teeter and the generosity of their customers.”
Harris Teeter would again like to thank its shoppers for helping MANNA to make progress as we work together to solve hunger.
