Our Most Successful Charity Sale Yet!
Thanks to all of our customers, this was our most successful charity sale to date!
Back on Saturday, October 26, our customers shopped till they dropped, scored big savings storewide, and raised an incredible amount of money help to fight hunger in our communities. During our 9th annual Charity Sale, customers collectively raised $24,175 for the Vermont Foodbank and JCEO Plattsburgh Foodshelf.
Throughout the month of October, our customers were encouraged to make a $10 donation to the Vermont Foodbank and JCEO Plattsburgh Foodshelf in exchange for a custom canvas tote bag and exclusive access to the storewide sale. 100% of the donations collected went directly to the non-profit organizations. This week, the donation checks were presented by Mark and Todd McCarthy - the Vermont Foodbank received their check for $20,608, and the JCEO Plattsburgh Foodshelf received theirs for $3,567.
“We are blown away by the generosity of Lenny’s and their customers,” says Vermont Foodbank CEO, John Sayles. “They made this the most successful charity sale to date! Because of them, people throughout Vermont will have access to the food they need this holiday season. Thank you all!”
“Our customers have astounded us once again with their generosity,” said Mark McCarthy. “They are committed to making a difference in the lives of their neighbors. To date, we have donated over $133,000 to take action against food insecurity in our area.”
We are so proud of the members of our community for showing strong support for such a worthy cause. Thank you to everyone who donated!
