Giant/Martin’s kicked off its signature hunger-relief campaign “Bag Hunger” with a Giant One-Day Give in partnership with 31 food banks across Pennsylvania and Maryland. Giant/Martin’s donated a total of $155,000 in gift cards to help organizations provide healthy meals for those in need.
“During this time of the year when donations aren’t as robust, we wanted to make sure that our food bank partners could immediately restock their shelves with the basics,” said Giant/Martin’s Division President Tom Lenkevich. “This Giant One-Day Give kicks off our Bag Hunger in-store donation campaign, where our customers and associates donate so generously to help our neighbors in need.”
From February 26 through March 11, customers can donate to their local food bank at any Giant/Martin’s checkout through the grocers’ annual Bag Hunger in-store campaign. During last fall’s Bag Hunger campaign, $550,888 was raised to support local and regional food banks in four states.
