The grocer is rushing a truck loaded with cleaning items and snacks to assist residents who are cleaning up after severe flooding from Hurricanes Frances and Ivan. The truck’s cargo includes paper towels, bleach, Clorox cleanser, Pine Sol cleanser, Food Lion all-purpose cleanser, baby wipes, garbage bags, paper cups, and plates, plastic eating utensils, cans of pork & beans, cans of tuna, Snyder snacks, and other snack foods.
The supplies will be delivered to Manna Food Bank in Asheville, which will work with the American Red Cross to handle distribution of the supplies.
