Macey’s grocery stores teamed up with local customers to give back to the Nebo Education Foundation and to the Nebo Pantry specifically for hungry students. Spanish Fork Maceys donated $5,932 and Provo Maceys donated $1,515.72. Bill Summers, Spanish Fork Maceys General Manager, delivered the check to Lana Hiskey, Nebo Education Foundation Executive Director, to provide funding for nutritional meals for hungry students. The students can take these meals home to combat evening and weekend hunger.
The Annual Round Up Campaign is designed to ask guests to round up their grocery total to the nearest dollar. Bill Summers said, “We love partnering with the Nebo Education Foundation and Nebo Pantry. 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.”
Associated Retail Operations representative, Sarah Pettit, stated, “We know that food insecurity is a real issue that affects one in seven children in the state of Utah. 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.”
“These funds will truly help feed our hungry students, through no fault of their own,” summarized Lana Hiskey. “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.”
