Stocking The Shelves & Changing Lives

A new month is here and with it, the kickoff of the ninth annual "Fight Hunger" campaign at all Weis Markets in our area. Many stores are starting to roll out the project and it officially kicks into high gear on Thursday, September 8.

To date, the supermarket corporation has raised nearly a million dollars for local food banks in our area. The grocery store chain is also one of seven corporate sponsors of WNEP-TV's Ryan's Run which raises money for kids and adults with disabilities served by Allied Services. You can support WNEP's Ryan's Run at this link!
