More Updates from Our Annual Food Drive
This is one of our favorite times of the year. One of the main reasons for this is because we get to see how our annual food drive has helped people in our community, made possible by our wonderful customers!
This year, we were able to collect a grand total of 13,016 cans. And because Summers matches every donation, we were able to give away more than 26,000 cans to people in need!
Here's a breakdown of what we collected from all our Summers locations –
- Anderson – 475 cans
- Broad Ripple/Indianapolis – 700 cans
- Brownsburg – 303 cans
- Chesterton – 622 cans
- Columbus – 787 cans
- Dayton, OH – 837 cans
- Franklin – 636 cans
- Fort Wayne – 452 cans
- Greenfield – 2,000 cans
- Kokomo – 1,097 cans
- Lafayette – 686 cans
- Marion – 1,100 cans
- New Albany – 260 cans
- Noblesville – 3,061 cans
What's even more exciting is being able to see firsthand how these donations helped people this holiday season. For example, the donations we collected from our Indianapolis food drive went to the Wheeler Mission, a ministry dedicated to helping Indianapolis' homeless.
The cans collected at Summers of Dayton went to benefit the Lebanon Food Pantry in Lebanon, Ohio as well as Feeding Friends in Harmony located in Kettering, Ohio.
We truly believe Summers has some of the most generous customers around. From our family to yours, thank you for helping us make a difference!
