FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TOPS LAUNCHES ANNUAL CHECK OUR HUNGER CAMPAIGN
WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in New York, northern Pennsylvania, and western Vermont, is encouraging the community to support its Annual Check Out Hunger campaign to benefit participating food banks beginning Sunday, January 27 – Saturday, February 16, 2019. Since 2006, Tops has raised over $3,900,000 for those who are food insecure.
A staggering one in eight individuals and one in five children are food insecure and do not know where their next meal will come from. With the communities support, however, we can make a difference. When shopping at Tops simply tell your cashier you’d like to help Tops Check Out Hunger and a donation of $2, $3, or $5 will help provide food for your local food bank.
“Eradicating hunger and assisting our fellow neighbors in need is part of Tops core mission so supporting this effort on an annual basis is something that we gladly stand behind,” said Frank Curci, Chairman of the Board, and Chief Executive Officer for Tops Friendly Markets.
Participating food banks that will benefit from this year’s Check out Hunger Campaign include:
Food Bank of WNY
Food Bank of Southern Tier
Food Bank of North West Pennsylvania
Food Bank of Central Pennsylvania
