11/29/2012 - Local Donor to Match Customer Donations at Raymond Hannaford
Raymond, NH (November 29, 2012) – This holiday season a local donor has issued a very special challenge to New Hampshire shoppers that visit the Raymond Hannaford with a goal of increasing food donations to the New Hampshire Food Bank.
For every one specified item that customers buy and leave at the store to donate to the Food Bank, the donor will match it with 10 of the same item. Then, Hannford will double the donation, turning the one item purchased by the customer into 22.
The donation schedule and items to be purchased are:
December 2nd to December 8th: Cans of my essentials® pasta sauce
December 9th to December 15th: Cans of my essentials® no salt added veggies
