Starting May 7 through May 20, 2017, all 185 Giant Food Stores and Martin’s Food Markets will offer customers the opportunity to donate $1 at checkout to support military members and families through the American Red Cross Service to Armed Forces and USO.
This year, Giant and Martin’s stores have implemented a way for customers to donate at self-service registers, as well.
“We remain committed to supporting our brave men and women who serve and have served through our ‘Support Our Troops’ campaign,” said Mary St. Ledger Baggett, director of marketing and external communications, GIANT/MARTIN’S. “Since we began the campaign in 2005, our customers and associates have generously donated more than $4 million to organizations that assist our soldiers and their families.”
Red Cross Central Pennsylvania Region CEO Jeri Sims added, “We’re so grateful for the opportunity to partner with Giant in this campaign that will enable us to support military members and families from the moment they join the military, through deployment and long after they’ve returned home.”
The Red Cross Service to Armed Forces program has provided critical services to military members and their families since the establishment of the Red Cross in 1881. To learn more about the program visitwww.redcross.org/SAF.
