Reasor’s Collects Over $60,000 for Stamp Out Hunger CampaignPosted on May 21st, 2018
April 25th – May 15th each Reasor’s location was setup with a drop off location at the main entrance, where customers had the opportunity to purchase a pre-made sack with the most needed items for $15 or drop off a non-perishable food donation.
With your help, 3,226 $15 sacks were sold. Customers were also given an opportunity to donate any amount at the register with a donation card. After all donations were counted, the total between cash donations and pre-made sacks came to $61,230! Thank you for making this event a success once again this year. All proceeds were donated to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma.
