Weis Markets Donates $350K To Paralyzed Veterans Of America

Weis Markets

Sunbury, Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets has donated $350,000 to Paralyzed Veterans of America, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting veterans with spinal cord injuries, disorders and diseases, like MS and ALS. Officials from Weis Markets presented the check to PVA on Nov. 14 at the company’s Enola, Pennsylvania, store. 

This donation was raised through a six-week in-store fundraising campaign and a corporate donation. The funds will support PVA’s mission and help create a world that ensures paralyzed veterans receive the specialized, quality health care they need, the benefits they earned and the careers they want.

“We have been proud partners of PVA for six years, and together with our customers, we have raised over $2 million to the organization since 2017. The generosity of our customers each year continues to impress us,” said Maria Rizzo, VP of marketing and advertising for Weis Markets.

“This is a partnership we value tremendously, and we are pleased to support their mission of providing injured veterans with the care they deserve.” 

Founded in 1912, Weis Markets is a mid-Atlantic food retailer operating 197 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Virginia and West Virginia.

“We are incredibly grateful to Weis Markets for their ongoing generosity and steadfast support,” said Charles Brown, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America.

“Year over year, despite a pandemic and financial hardships felt across the board, Weis Markets and their customers step up and help PVA provide life-altering programs and services that improve the lives of veterans and enhances their ability to remain independent. We thank them for this year’s contribution and look forward to helping more veterans – both locally and nationally.”

Paralyzed Veterans of America ensures veterans receive the benefits earned through service to the nation; monitors their care in VA spinal cord injury units; and funds research and education in the search for a cure and improved care for individuals with paralysis.

The nonprofit also develops training and career services, works to ensure accessibility in public buildings and space and provides health and rehabilitation opportunities through sports and recreation. With more than 70 offices and 33 chapters, Paralyzed Veterans of America serves veterans, their families and their caregivers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
