A job well done by local shoppers!
Chief Supermarkets held Good Neighbor Day April 22, and according to the Bryan Times, patrons of the store here in Bryan did a wonderful job contributing to northwest Ohio families who need assistance.
Chief, on April 22nd, agreed to donate a percentage of sales to support local food pantries.
Customers could choose the amount they wished to donate when they checked out.
According to Chief Supermarkets, donations from all the company’s stores totaled $18,562, and $1,888 of that total came from the Bryan store and will go to Bryan area food pantries.
Since the company initiated the program in 2009, $209,000 has been donated to food pantries.
Officials say each dollar donated provides 25 pounds of food… enough to make 19 meals or to feed two people for three days.
