Food City Hosts Annual Pet Hunger Drive
Abingdon, VA Wednesday, Nov 23, 2016.
The Food City Pet Club is gearing up for their annual Pet Hunger Drive. This year’s drive will take place November 28th through January 6th throughout the entire supermarket chain.
During the drive, shoppers are invited to purchase pre-packaged pet food bags for only $10. Once purchased, the bags can be deposited in the special collection bins located inside the store. 100% of the food donated benefits local animal shelters throughout Food City’s market area.
“Our local animal shelters are dedicated to providing rescue, rehabilitation and adoptive placement for abused and abandoned animals. Food City is excited to partner with our valued customers to provide area shelters with much needed food supplies to help meet the needs of the animals in their care,” says Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer.
While Food City’s 2014 campaign raised over $67,000, last year’s campaign raised an astounding $90,060 in much needed food donations.
“With the assistance of our loyal customers, we hope to set a new collection record this year to help feed animals in need throughout our region,” adds 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.
