MARTIN’S Gives Thousands Through ‘Share A Holiday Meal’ Program

More than $100,00 was donated by MARTIN’S Food Markets’ customers through the Share A Holiday Meal program last year, resulting in thousands of dollars being contributed to the Salvation Army and other local charities.
Friday, MARTIN’S gave a check worth $26,000 to the Salvation Army Central Virginia Command, funds donated by customers from November 2 through December 6, 2014.
“We feed over 200 people a day through our shelter, also food for our Boys and Girls Club members throughout the year,” said Maj. Timothy Carter of the Salvation Army. “This is a tremendous help for that effort.”
“Thank you to our customers for helping to brighten this holiday season for families in need throughout the greater Richmond and Williamsburg communities,” said Beth Davis, district director, MARTIN’S. “Since 2010 MARTIN’S has been proud to participate in Share a Holiday Meal. Our customers have generously donated more than $450,000 to date.”
In addition to the Salvation Army Central Virginia command, the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Christmas Mother, Hanover Christmas Mother, Henrico Christmas Mother and Williamsburg Salvation Army all received a portion of the generous donations.
