Associated Wholesale Grocers (AWG) celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2016. To mark the milestone, the Kansas City, Kansas-based wholesaler asked its vendor partners to consider placing an advertisement in a special Shelby Report edition commemorating AWG’s anniversary, with a portion of the proceeds going to Samaritan’s Purse. Through that effort, AWG recently presented a $2,559 donation to Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.Purse AWG 90th
