Charley Family Shop’n Save officials presented $50,000 in food vouchers to the Westmoreland County Food Bank earlier this month, in the form of 2,500 vouchers valued at $20 each.
“It’s a paper coupon that’s good at any of our three stores,” Vice President Tom Charley said. “We knew that we wanted to help out the food bank. People need food right now, and we’re in the public’s eye when it comes to that, so if we can help out, we wanted to do that.”
The Charley family has one store in Murrysville and two in Greensburg.
Food bank executive director Jennifer Miller said the vouchers will be distributed to its partner agencies in the Murrysville and Greensburg areas.
“They won’t necessarily be packed into the food boxes, but the volunteers there will have them to give out,” Miller said.
