The Nebo Education Foundation and Nebo Pantry have nearly $7,500 extra this vacation season thanks to donations from two Maceys places in Utah County.
Maceys in Spanish Fork donated $5,932 and Maceys in Provo donated $1,515.72. This cash was delivered in a examine by Bill Summers, the overall supervisor of Macey’s in Spanish Fork, to Lana Hiskey, the manager director of the Nebo Education Foundation.
“We love partnering with the Nebo Education Foundation and Nebo Pantry,” Summers stated in a press launch. “We love seeing our customers give back. It is an easy way to give without hurting too much. We hope to make it an annual event.”
The cash donated to the Nebo Education Foundation will go towards the Nebo Pantry and will probably be used to present nutritious meals to college students in want, significantly throughout the evenings and weekends when they don’t have entry to college meals.
“These funds will truly help feed our hungry students, through no fault of their own,” Hiskey stated in a press launch. “Our community is so generous, it simply brings tears. Nebo could not offer so many amazing programs without the generous help of so many businesses. Thank you Maceys from all our Nebo children.”
These donations have been made as a part of the annual Round-Up Campaign, the place retailers give prospects the chance to spherical up their buy complete to the closest greenback with the intention that the extra cash will go towards a charitable group.
“We know that food insecurity is a real issue that affects one in seven children in the state of Utah,” Sarah Pettit, an Associated Retail Operations consultant, stated in a press launch. “As local grocers, we are dissatisfied with this and believe that we can be a part of the solution. We hope these funds will serve your students well and will provide a better opportunity for them to learn, grow, and show academic success.”
