Sunbury, Pennsylvania-based Weis Markets, in partnership with its customers, supported local nonprofits Nov. 29 in celebration of National Day of Giving.
Each store has selected a nonprofit to receive customer donations, which Weis Markets will match up to $500 per store.
Customers can donate to the local nonprofit by adding $1, $3, $5 or $10 when they check out at registers, or by rounding up their grocery bills to the next dollar.
“Our Day of Giving program is a special opportunity for Weis Markets store teams to direct donations to local nonprofits doing good work in communities in the seven states where we have stores,” said Maria Rizzo, VP of marketing and advertising.
“We thank our employees for their enthusiastic support of the communities where they live and work, and we remain grateful to our customers for their continued support of these good causes.”
More than 150 local non-profits are participating in Weis Markets’ Day of Giving program. The local organizations chosen by Weis locations are food pantries, emergency shelter services and animal rescue organizations.
In addition to the local store donations, Weis Markets is presenting $5,000 donations to two local charities.
Founded in 1912, Weis Markets is a mid-Atlantic food retailer operating 197 stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, New York West Virginia and Virginia.
