Meridian Mayor Tammy De Weerd eyed a shelf and targeted the best items to help her meet a goal of $1,000 worth of groceries at our store on (road) in Meridian, ID. Her shopping total was critical, as every dollar in her basket meant a dollar of support for the United Way of Treasure Valley’s After School Snack Program.

The Mayor ended up with over $3,000 worth of groceries…nice work!  We matched dollar for dollar the amount of the groceries in the Mayor’s cart, and now thousands of Treasure Valley school kids who participate in the School Snack Porgram this year, through United Way and Boys and Girls Clubs of Ada County and Nampa and the Caldwell Family YMCA, can eat healthy treats.

Thanks so much to Mayor De Weerd for coming out to help us support our community’s students!
