During a 5 week campaign to help the World Central Kitchen’s effort to help those affected by war in Ukraine, Price Chopper and Market 32 were able to raise more than $180,000 dollars to the effort.
Cashiers asked customers if they would like to round up change in their transactions to help support the cause. Price Chopper and Market 32 provided a match of $25,000 dollars and Board Chairman Emeritus, Neil Golub also contributed $25,000 dollars for the effort.
“We are incredibly gratified by the response from our customers, teammates, and communities for this effort to help feed the people of Ukraine,” said Mona Golub, Price Chopper/Market 32 vice president of public relations and consumer services. “As a provider of vital goods and services, helping people to feed and take care of themselves and their families has always been our higher purpose. We consider ourselves blessed to be able to extend that ethos to our global neighbors in the wake of the devastation this war has brought.”
