Food City officials recently announced plans to help raise funds to benefit the new Bristol, TN Dog Park. The City plans to construct the dog park at Food City Park, located behind the Virginia Avenue Food City.
“We’re excited to have the opportunity to partner with the City of Bristol, TN to help raise funds to bring a premier dog park to Food City Park,” says Steven C. Smith, Food City’s president and chief executive officer.
June 8th through July 2nd, Bristol and Blountville area Food City locations will offer $1, $3, and $5 scanable donation cards for purchase at the checkout. Customers wishing to make a donation, can simply select the desired dollar amount and it will be conveniently added to their order total. 100% of the proceeds will benefit the Bristol, TN Dog Park.
“The City of Bristol, TN is excited to partner with Food City to raise additional funds not covered by the Dog Park Dash grant to build a one of a kind dog park. The funds raised will go directly towards the cost of the construction of the dog park that will be located behind the Virginia Avenue Food City. The dog park will be a wonderful addition to the heavily populated east end of Bristol,” says Terry Napier, director of The City of Bristol Tennessee Parks and Recreation Department.
