This Spring while most businesses were closed and many lives turned upside-down due to the coronavirus, Lenny’s Shoe & Apparel stepped up to help support people facing hunger.
For every online order placed May 1st through June 15th on LennyShoe.com, Lenny’s pledged to donate $5 to the Vermont Foodbank and JCEO Plattsburgh Foodshelf. Brothers Mark and Todd McCarthy made those donations, equaling $1,570, to local nonprofits serving the areas homeless.
“Our business is here to support people who work,” said Mark McCarthy, co-owner of Lenny’s. “That includes healthcare professionals, first responders, and essential workers who are serving our communities. We knew we could step up and help support our neighbors in need.”
“In this time of unprecedented need, long standing partners like Lenny’s Shoe and Apparel are helping to make sure that our neighbors across the state can put nutritious food on the table,” said Vermont Foodbank CEO, John Sayles. “We are so grateful to Lenny’s for making this possible!”
To date, Lenny’s has donated over $138,000 to the Vermont Foodbank and JCEO Plattsburgh Foodshelf.
