Publix 'Food For Sharing' Delivers Too!
Community, Letter Carriers 'Deliver' during Food Drive
For more than a quarter of a century the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) have conducted the 'Stamp Out Hunger' Food Drive. Every second Saturday in May, letter carriers across America collect the compassionate support of postal customers, and this past Saturday - the River Region responded.
We are still processing the totals of your donations. We will of course provide the tally, but until then, we wish to thank everyone involved in making this year's drive an unqualified success.
Red Nose Day is back THURSDAY for its fifth year in America, encouraging everyone to come together to end child poverty, one nose at a time. www.rednoseday.org. Money raised supports projects that ensure children in need are safe, healthy and educated, including programs at Feeding America member food banks in all 50 states.
Americans of all ages can get in on the fun and support the cause by wearing their Red Noses and watching the special night of TV on NBC on May 23.
Fighting Hunger 'One Red Nose at a Time'
Publix Super Markets has been a frequent and generous supporter of our mission of Feeding Hope Across Alabama. Their Food for Sharing program, held twice a year in the spring and fall, gives Publix patrons an opportunity to donate food to help OUR neighbors in need. Emphasizing OUR neighbors - is an important distinction, because the support you provide when you contribute while going through the checkout line stays in the River Region.
Today, River Region Publix Super Market leadership personally delivered a $6,965.87 check, which represented part of the proceeds from Food For Sharing. This past Friday morning, Publix made another delivery of 10,178 pounds of nutrition! When addressing the success of the Food For Sharing, which has raised more than $81 million in food since 2009, Publix Super Markets says, “None of this would be possible without your help. So let’s keep doing good together.” We couldn’t have said it any better. THANK YOU!
With the support of millions of generous Americans, hundreds of celebrities and many outstanding partners, in just four years, Red Nose Day has raised nearly $150 million to help end child poverty here in America and around the world. Money from Red Nose Day has supported programs in all 50 states and 38 countries internationally.
