Thank you to all of our great customers who participated in our first Wilco-wide Canned Food Drive. Without you, this would not have been as successful and fruitful for our local food agencies! During September, Wilco set up non-perishable food collection containers in all Farm Stores to collect food for each stores’ local Food Bank agency. We also gave back to customers with a special $5 OFF reward card for their food donation.
Wilco also pitched in corporately and donated a dollar for every pound of food collected, which equated to $3,200.00, and our partner, Land O Lakes, also matched that donation dollar for dollar! The Farms Stores also collected $1,136.40 through the Scan A Coupon program, which brought the total dollars collected for local food banks to $7,536.40 and total poundage of food collected at 3199.6lbs!
What a great way to stay involved with our communities and support helping each other!
