“Given that the Red Cross responds to a disaster every eight minutes, we know how important it is for them to have emergency response funds at the ready. We are proud that the collective generosity of Price Chopper/Market 32’s customers and teammates, in addition to our corporate match, supports neighbors near and far whose lives have been altered by disaster,” said Mona Golub, Price Chopper/Market 32’s vice president of public relations and consumer services.
“Red Cross volunteers provide relief to families impacted by home fires and other emergencies in our community 365 days a year. That relief is available immediately thanks to generous local donors who ensure that we are ready to respond every time disaster strikes,” said Kimmy Venter, chief communications officer for the American Red Cross Eastern New York Region. “The support we receive during the month of September – from Price Chopper/Market 32, their customers, and the team at News Channel 13 – allows us to provide relief to victims of disasters big and small, all year long. We’re very grateful for this longstanding partnership.”
