Food City Kicks Off Annual “Share Your Christmas” Campaign
Abingdon, VA Wednesday, Nov 9, 2016.
Food City is teaming up with WRCB-TV Channel 3 Eyewitness News, Chattanooga Times Free Press, Chattanooga Area Food Bank and WUSY 101 Radio to host their holiday “Share your Christmas” campaign. The annual fundraising drive benefits local hunger relief programs throughout our region.
“Food City is proud to be a partner of the Share your Christmas project to provide much-needed assistance to many of our friends and neighbors in need,” says Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.
Beginning November 14th and continuing through December 31st, $1, $3, and $5 contribution cards are available upon checkout at area Food City locations. Customers wishing to make a donation, simply need to select the desired dollar amount and it’s conveniently added to their grocery bill. Specially marked collection containers are also available inside select locations for those wishing to make non-perishable food donations. 100% of the proceeds benefit local hunger relief programs throughout our region.
“Millions of Americans need food assistance each year. The “Share Your Christmas” campaign is one way we can help those in need right here in our own area,” says Kevin Stafford, Food City vice president of marketing.
“Last year, the program was a huge success. With the support of our loyal customers and associates, we hope to raise even more this year to aide this vital need,” says Smith.
Headquartered in Abingdon, Virginia, K-VA-T Food Stores (Food City’s parent company) operates 135 retail outlets throughout southeast Kentucky, southwest Virginia, east Tennessee, Chattanooga and north Georgia.
