In a humanitarian effort to assist victims (and their families) of Tuesday's terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington D.C., all Farmer Jack Supermarkets in Metropolitan Detroit, Lansing and Toledo, will accept donations to benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.
``Our hearts and prayers go out to anyone who has been affected by this unfortunate tragedy,'' said Dennis Eidson, president and CEO of Farmer Jack Supermarkets.``We felt the best way to lend our help would be to provide a convenient means for our employees and customers to contribute directly to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.''
Donations can be in the form of cash or checks, and will be accepted at the courtesy counters in every Farmer Jack supermarket.
Farmer Jack Supermarkets also plans to make significant contributions of juice, granola bars and fruit snacks to everyone donating blood this weekend at nine American
Red Cross blood donation sites across southeastern Michigan. ``Our contribution of food and juice for blood donors was another way Farmer Jack Supermarkets felt we
could help during this very difficult time,'' said Eidson.
