The companies will each make a donation of up to $50,000 to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
“This year, we have already raised $2.4 million toward our $4 million goal for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” said Sherrii Webb, Food Lion’s community relations manager. “We invite our customers to help us during the next two weeks to collect an additional $1.6 million to provide critical care to thousands in need through this important organization.”
