ACME Customers Set a Donation record for 6ABC Holiday Food Drive
Jan 10th, 2014
ACME customers and associates showed what a little focus and determination could do when the local grocer’s leadership team made a special delivery to 6ABC for their Holiday Food Drive. 246,000 pounds of food amd over $58,000 were collected for Philabundance at local stores throughout the month of December.
“I can’t begin to express how proud I am of our stores, associates, and customers for what they accomplished with this year’s donations,” said Jim Perkins, president of ACME, “We increased the amount of food donated by 300% over what was donated last year, and raised nearly twice the amount of money for Philabundance. It’s incredible to be a part of this and I’m grateful that ACME is in a position to help.”
Bill Clark, the president of Philabundance, states it was the most successful year ever for the 6ABC Holiday Food Drive. “We benefit here because I feel the people in the Delaware Valley are probably more generous than average.”
