Type your Local Wegmans customers raise $6,000 for Anne Arundel County Food Bank
January 20, 2016
Anne Arundel County’s Wegmans raised nearly $6,000 as part of the grocer’s 2015 hunger relief campaign.
Customers at Wegmans 51 stores raised $1.84 million toward the effort, which allows customers to donate an amount at checkout that will go to each store’s local food bank. The 2015 total is an 8 percent increase over the 2014 campaign.
The $5,973 raised in Crofton will go to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank.
“We’re thankful to our customers and employees who so generously share our commitment to making a difference in every community we serve,” Linda Lovejoy, Wegmans community relations manager, said in a statement. “As we celebrate our 100th anniversary this year, a special point of pride is the partnerships we build to support local food banks in feeding the hungry.”
Asbury UMC located directly across from DSS in Annapolis were delighted to have the help of US Naval Academy Midshipmen to unload food, pack bags for distribution and assist the next morning distributing bags of food to those in need. Food used at this event included some the Midshipmen collected and donated earlier that month as part of our annual Harvest for the Hungry Food Drive. This is one of many ways that the Navy Mid's give back to our community.
Thank you for your help.

“It is often said that you can count the number of people who have a significant impact on your life on one hand,” Willard said in a statement. “Len made a significant impact not only on my life, but upon thousands of other lives as well. He was compassionate, caring, generous and loyal. He will be sorely missed.”
The Freezer truck donated in memory of Len Moodispaw will continue these efforts helping thousand for years to come. Now the AA Co Food Bank is able to meet the requirements to acquire frozen food donations from vendors because this freezer truck ensure temperature regulations are met during transport.
