Sunbury, PA — Weis Markets today announced the successful completion of its month-long round-up at the register program to support the iFoster Hope campaign. On behalf of Weis Markets, Ron Bonacci, Vice President of Advertising and Marketing, presented a $250,000 check to iFoster, the national nonprofit that is operating the iFoster Hope campaign. These funds will provide children and youth in foster care in the seven states Weis serves with the resources and services they most need to reach their potential.
“We live and work in the communities we serve and believe in giving back to causes that help children,” said Ron Bonacci, Weis Markets Vice President of Advertising and Marketing. “iFoster targets support and resources to help at risk youth live better lives. We are grateful to our customers for their support and have complemented their generosity with a corporate donation.”
As COVID-19 continues to impact everyone’s lives, our most vulnerable children and youth, those in foster care, are even more adversely impacted. The thousands of generous Weis Market customers who contributed to the round-up campaign will have a huge impact on the lives of young people in foster care in their communities. iFoster has engaged its national network of foster care agency partners to identify the local needs and ensure young people receive the specific resources and services they need to achieve their potential.
“We are so grateful to Weis Markets for launching the iFoster Hope campaign to support local children and youth in foster care and those aging out,” said Serita Cox, iFoster Co-Founder & CEO. “These funds will make a real difference in the lives of foster kids in all of the communities Weis Markets serves.”
