Pamida kicks off Holiday donation events

Many families and individuals in communities that Pamida serves continue to face economic hardships this holiday season. In the spirit of giving, the Pamida Foundation is pleased to announce that it is, once again, making an annual donation to a food bank in each community and holding in-store events to help local food banks stock their shelves for those in need.        
Monetary donations for food banks were made during Round-Up Events held through December 14. Store customers that wish to participate can simply ask their cashiers to “round up” their purchase totals to the next dollar. The excess money will then be donated to the local food bank.  
“During these tough economic times, the Pamida Foundation is proud to give back to individuals and families who need it the most,” said Jessica Strohman, executive director of the Pamida Foundation. “We are extremely proud to supplement local food banks with donations from the Pamida Foundation and our loyal and generous customers.”
The Foundation is proud to donate to each community and a total of $302,500 will go back to local community food banks this holiday season.   
“We ask that all of our customers donate whatever they can to support our efforts. Even the smallest donations can make a big difference in the lives of many. Together, we can put food on the table for all those in need and make it a memorable holiday for everyone in our communities,” adds Strohman.  
Overall, the Pamida Foundation supports more than 900 charitable organizations that focus on education, helping families in need and enhancing the quality of life for senior citizens. In 2009, the Foundation donated $1 million to these organizations to better the lives of citizens in their communities.
