Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) November 05, 2014
Grocery stores owned and operated by HAC, Inc sold 25,536 paper pumpkins at $1 each to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The fundraiser ran through the month of October and allowed customers to purchase a paper pumpkin at the register to show their support for the hospital. Those who purchased the pumpkins wrote their name on them so their support could be displayed at the store and persuade others to participate as well.
Store employees worked to encourage customers to contribute and together the stores surpassed their goal of raising $25,000. HAC thanks all customers who participated in the fundraiser and hopes to make this event more successful in the future. “Our customers are at the heart of this fundraiser. They continue to give back to St. Jude and have surpassed our expectations with their charitable giving. Our part of the process is simple and we will continue to find ways to allow our customers to give back to the community. We thank all those who donated to this very important cause,” commented the company’s CEO, Darryl Fitzgerald.
