The drive began on November 30th and ran through January 9th and included all of Food City’s area supermarkets. During the promotion, Food City customers were invited to purchase special pre-packaged pet food bags for only $10. The bags purchased were placed in a special collection bin for donation by Food City to local animal shelters. 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 the 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, this year’s campaign raised an astounding $90,060 in food donations.
“We would like to thank our loyal customers for helping make this significant contribution possible. Their generosity will help feed numerous animals in need throughout our region,” adds Smith.
