Weis Markets Raises $450K For Paralyzed Veterans Of America


Sunbury, Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets has donated $450,000 to Paralyzed Veterans of America – the nation’s only nonprofit organization dedicated solely to supporting veterans with spinal cord injuries, disorders and diseases, like MS and ALS, and all people with disabilities.

Officials from Weis Markets presented the check to PVA on Nov. 12 at the company’s Perry Hall, Maryland, store. 

This donation was raised through a six-week in-store fundraising campaign centered around celebrating PVA’s 75th anniversary. The donation will support PVA’s mission and help create a world where the nation’s most severely injured heroes have access to what they deserve: specialized, quality health care, meaningful careers and their earned benefits.

Throughout the fundraiser, Weis Markets and its associates encouraged customers to make small donations at checkout by rounding up their orders or purchasing $1, $3, $5 or $10 vouchers. 

“We know PVA’s good work and have generated more than $1.9 million in customer and corporate donations for their programs over the past five years. Our customers continue to amaze us with their generosity,” said Ron Bonacci, VP of advertising and marketing for Weis Markets. “This is one of the most important causes we support. Many of our associates have served their country, including our late Chairman Robert F. Weis. We honor their service and the service of our nation’s veterans.”

“Donations from partners, like Weis Markets, enable PVA to help veterans throughout their journey of recovery – both locally and around the nation,” said Carl Blake, executive director of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “Thanks to them, PVA has provided vital services and resources, free of charge, for 75 years. We’re grateful for their ongoing partnership and look forward to many more years together.”

Founded in 1912, Weis Markets Inc. is a Mid Atlantic food retailer operating 197 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Virginia and West Virginia. For more information, visit: WeisMarkets.com or Facebook.com/WeisMarkets.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
