GIANT donates nearly $11,000 to Penn Manor to pay cafeteria bills

   The GIANT Company has donated nearly $11,000 to support the nutritional needs of Penn Manor students.

  The donation was generated during the “GIANT Feeding School Kids Program,” during which customers were asked to round up their grocery purchases to the nearest dollar or convert their CHOICE Rewards points to grocery dollars.

  GIANT matched these donations by $1.5 million and is distributing the proceeds to participating school districts and organizations.

  The Penn Manor donation will be used to pay off the cafeteria account balances for students whose families are struggling financially.

  Erin Arnold, manager of the Stone Mill Plaza GIANT store, presented a check for $10,796 to Penn Manor food service director Courtney Kolp on May 20.

  Many thanks to GIANT and its customers for their generous support of this cause!
