KEENE, N.H. -- C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc., here joined with its associates this holiday season to help needy people across the country via donations of food and gifts.
"Our associates are generous, with many of them donating gifts, warm winter clothes and food to help those in our communities who are less fortunate," said C&S c.e.o. and chairman Rick Cohen. "Especially during the holidays, it is wonderful to see the C&S family go the extra mile to offer help."
One of the initiatives at C&S' corporate headquarters was the assistance offered to 16 families identified by human services agencies such as the Salvation Army and a local women's crisis center. All departments at C&S donated new toys, clothes, or household items. A C&S location in Hatfield, Mass. gave similar help and gifts to six families.
Other initiatives included donating brand-new toys to thousands of children in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, California, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina; and sending care packages from C&S customer services and chain sales associates to 300 servicemen and -women serving in Iraq in the 6th Marines H&S Company.
C&S provides distribution services to grocery chains and independent stores, delivering to more than 5,000 locations from its distribution centers in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Vermont.
