Our Charities

PS Charities

PS Food Mart proudly supports several local food pantries and elementary school backpack programs in the communities where we operate. We are also very proud to be supporters of charitable organizations that help to better our communities.

 

 

Every community where PS Food Mart operates is our "Hometown", and we are committed to helping fight local hunger everywhere we operate. In 2010, we created the PS Food Mart Charities fund through the Homer Area Community Foundation. 2010 was the first year of our annual "Fight Hunger Give Hope" campaign, which is held in March of each year. Through this campaign, PS Food Mart Charities has been able to provide financial support to the South Central MI Food Bank, Toledo Northwest Ohio Food Bank, SeaGate Food Bank of Toledo and numerous local food pantries and school weekend backpack programs in communities wherever PS Food Mart operates. The "Fight Hunger Give Hope" campaign has raised over $470,000 to date. We want our customers and community members to know that every dollar of the money we raise during our campaign goes directly to help fight local hunger. We believe that no one should have to worry about where their next meal will come from, which is why we are committed to the "Fight Hunger Give Hope" campaign.

In addition to the "Fight Hunger Give Hope" campaign, we also hold an annual Pop Tart campaign in October. Through this campaign and the support of our generous customers, we have been able to donate more than 440,000 Pop Tarts to local Food Pantries and School Backpack programs.
