Price Chopper and Market 32 grocery stores have announced this year’s Salvation Army Holiday Kettle Donation Program was a major success. This year donations amounted to about $580,000 through the six weeks the campaign ran at all stores.
Price Chopper says this year’s money raised was $81,000 more than last year and will go towards directly benefiting those in need throughout the communities where the funds were collected.
“The Salvation Army is incredibly thankful for its continuing partnership with Price Chopper/Market 32 stores,” said Major Kevin Stoops, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army, Empire State Division. “Each Christmas season, Salvation Army Red Kettles located in front of these stores raise money, which helps The Salvation Army provide food, clothing, and many other services to local families and individuals in need throughout the year. Thank you to our generous partners and donors for helping to make real change happen in the lives of others.”
Price Chopper and Market 32 have been in collaboration with the Salvation Army for over 35 years now.
