Fred Meyers Matches Customer Donations

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.- This year's Second Harvest Feeding Families Food Drive was a huge success; thanks in part to our sponsors who helped raise funds.

The Fred Meyer stores in the Tri-Cities collected more than $30,000 from customers leaving donations in their cash register coin boxes. Fred Meyer matched those donations with a $25,000 donation of their own. They hope to ramp up the donations even more next year.

"Hopefully we can raise it from 32,000 to 64,000 and enable us to do some more great things in the community," said Store Director Mike Ayers.

The Feeding Families Food Drive final total for this year came out to more than $102,000.
