On Saturday, October 26, Vermonters shopped till they dropped – and raised more than $15,000 to fight hunger.
During the 4th annual Charity Sale, Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel and its customers collectively raised $15,020 for the Vermont Foodbank. Last week, Lenny’s co-owner Todd McCarthy presented that donation to Vermont Foodbank CEO John Sayles.
“What an incredible donation!” said Sayles. “We are deeply grateful to Lenny’s and their loyal customers for their years of partnership. Together we are ensuring that our neighbors have the food they need during times of great need.”
Lenny’s customers were encouraged to make a donation to the Vermont Foodbank in exchange for a VIP ticket to the one day Charity Sale featuring exclusive storewide savings. 100% proceeds from each VIP ticket sold went directly to the Vermont Foodbank. In addition to the ticket proceeds, Lenny’s also donated a percentage of the day’s total sales. This donation translates to 45,060 meals for Vermont children, families and seniors who experience hunger.
“Our customers have astounded us once again with their generosity,” said McCarthy. “To date, we have now donated $33,431.04 to the Vermont Foodbank.”
