Week 8: That's a wrap!
Ray’s Food Place and Shop Smart customers in Southern Oregon gave big this year to help their neighbors. Between Halloween and Dec. 23, customers throughout Oregon and Northern California donated 7,480 bags of food worth a total value of $149,600. Customers in the Southern Oregon region were an important part of that, accounting for 2,595 bags or 35% of the total.
All of the food stays local, with bags donated to 38 food banks in the communities where customers shopped at their Ray’s and Shop Smart stores.
“Our customers truly demonstrated their generosity by raising a huge amount of food for their neighbors in need,” said Karl Wissmann, president and chief executive officer of C&K Market, Inc., which operates the stores. “We are so proud to be part of this effort and pleased to know that because of Ray’s and Shop Smart customers, Oregon and Northern California food banks have nearly $150,000 in essential food supplies.”
Ray’s stores in the Southern Oregon region are in these communities: Bandon, Central Point, Eagle Point, Gold Beach, Gold Hill, Jacksonville, Merlin, Phoenix, Port Orford, Rogue River, Selma and Talent, with a Shop Smart location in Cave Junction.
