Biz Roundup: Food Lion stores accept donations for hurricane relief
SALISBURY – Hurricane Dorian caused major damage along the East Coast, and Food Lion stores are accepting financial donations at its more than 1,000 locations to benefit the American Red Cross, its national disaster relief partner.
Customers can donate any amount or round up their purchase to the nearest dollar at the register. Food Lion will donate 100% of the donations raised through Sept. 20 to support Red Cross disaster relief to help people affected by disasters like storms and other crises.
“Our associates and customers in the towns and cities impacted by Hurricane Dorian know they can count on Food Lion to be there before, during and after the storm,” said Meg Ham, president of Food Lion. “We’ve heard from many of our customers across our operating area that they want to join with us to support our neighbors and communities in areas impacted by the storm.”
“Together, our gift will enable the American Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help people recover not only just from this storm, but from more than 62,000 disasters both big and small our neighbors experience throughout the year.”
