Save Mart Store Manager Chris Benson presents Joyce Buckingham, Exec. Director of the Ron Wood Family Resource Center, a $2,031 check on Thursday.
Save Mart stores collect money at the registers for the food insecure in our community. Customers may chose to donate any denomination at the register when checking out and the money goes to a local food bank to support families in-need in the community. Save Mart has chosen Ron Wood as the recipient for these funds.
The Ron Wood Community Essentials Food Bank serves more than 4,000 individuals each month with emergency food (2-3 days supply). More than 50 percent of those served are children and another 25 percent are individuals who are homebound, disabled and seniors. Anyone who would like to donate or volunteer at the Ron Wood Community Essentials Food Bank may call 884-2269.
