Lee’s Marketplace contributes thousands in donations to support and feed the community
Logan– Lee’s Marketplace, a local family-owned grocery business, is once again helping stock local food banks with its support of the campaign, Curds + Kindness Dairy Drive, launching September 22. For Lee’s, now celebrating its 40th year serving communities throughout Utah, stocking local food banks is only one of multiple philanthropic efforts the company generously supports year after year in the communities it serves in stores from six locations.
Curds + Kindness Dairy Drive Launches September 22nd
For over 10 years, Lee’s Marketplace has partnered with Dairy West, Dairy Farmers of America, and Gossner’s in the Great American Milk Drive which supplies local communities with much-needed dairy products. This year’s Curds + Kindness Dairy Drive runs September 22 – October 13.
In 2020, the Great American Milk Drive expanded to Curds+Kindness in an effort to supply dairy products beyond just milk. Last year, more than $29,000 in contributions were donated, supporting local pantries in Utah communities where those in need can place orders throughout the entire year.
Starting September 22, guests have the opportunity to make monetary donations at the check stand. They can either select a dollar amount or they can opt to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar. To add to the excitement of the campaign, cashiers will be competing with each other each Wednesday to gather the most guest contributions on Lee’s traditional Traffic-stopper Wednesday. The campaign runs through Wednesday, October 13.
“Beyond providing fresh products and quality service to the community, Lee’s Marketplace dedicates time and resources to help create positive change and make the communities we serve a better place to live,” says Jonathan Badger, CEO, Lee’s Marketplace. “We strive to understand local needs and we’re proud to partner with the Great American Milk Drive because it closely aligns with our values.”
