MATTHEWS, N.C. (PRWEB) January 22, 2020
Harris Teeter would like to extend a sincere thank you to its loyal shoppers and valued associates who donated more than $1.5 million to local food banks during its Harvest Feast Round Up Campaign. Throughout the months of November and December, in all Harris Teeter locations, shoppers and associates were invited to round up their transaction to the nearest dollar.
The financial contributions made through these efforts equates to 15 million meals* which food banks and food pantries in Harris Teeter’s marketing areas can supply to the community members they serve.
“Harris Teeter is proud to support its local food bank partners and their mission to end hunger,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “We are extremely thankful for our generous shoppers and valued associates who help feed our food-insecure neighbors each year.”
As part of the company’s Harvest Feast programming, Harris Teeter associates also volunteered at food banks in Charlotte, N.C., Raleigh, N.C., Charleston, S.C. and Washington, D.C. to pack holiday meal bags for community members-in-need. Associates assembled 9,000 bags to provide 36,000 people a holiday meal.
Harris Teeter would like to thank its media partners Cox Cable, Spectrum and WRFX for assisting with the promotion of the Round Up campaign.
