tater Bros., its customers, and employees have contributed a combined $200,000 to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
For two-and-a-half weeks in June, customers and employees at all 165 of the regional grocer’s stores were able to donate to the organization by purchasing “Light the Night” paper balloons for $1. Additionally, the grocer made a direct contribution to the “Light the Night” campaign.
