Customers and associates at Giant Food Stores and Martin’s Food Markets showed their support for men and women in the Armed Forces by donating $517,535 through the stores’ annual Support Our Troops campaign. The in-store fundraiser benefits regional USOs throughout the company’s operating area and the Wounded Warrior Project.

“Thanks to our customers and associates, we continue to assist the brave men and women who serve our country daily. Due to the outstanding work of our regional USOs and the Wounded Warrior Project, our troops are able to stay connected to their families and receive needed care if they are injured,” said Rick Herring, president.

From May 5-18, customers were invited to donate $1 at the checkout toward the USO or the Wounded Warrior Project. Regional USOs are dedicated to programs that build morale and keep soldiers connected to their families. The Wounded Warrior Project enlists the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service members, helps severely injured men and women aid and assist each other, and provides unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

Since the inception of Support Our Troops in 2005, Giant and Martin’s customers have donated more than $2.3 million. In addition to financial support, Giant and Martin’s also reach out several times a year to the family members of associates who are serving overseas by sending care packages of toiletries, sweets, beverage mixes, soups and microwaveable meals.
