GIANT customers support the troops with $560,000 donation

Customers and associates at GIANT Food Stores recently showed their support for local men and women serving in the Armed forces by generously donating $560,194 through the store’s annual Support Our Troops campaign. Since the inception of Support Our Troops in 2005, GIANT customers and associates have donated more than $3 million to benefit regional USOs and the Wounded Warrior Project.


“GIANT is grateful for the service and sacrifice of our Veterans and active soldiers, and we will continue to do all we can to be a better neighbor to them and their loved ones,” said Tom Lenkevich, president. “We are proud to provide this annual donation and to continue our partnership with much-needed organizations like our regional USOs and the Wounded Warrior Project. It’s our way of saying thanks for all that these men and women have done for us.”


Held May 4 through May 17, customers could donate $1 at the checkout to benefit their regional USO chapter and the Wounded Warrior Project. Regional USOs are dedicated to programs that build morale and keep soldiers connected to their families. The Wounded Warrior Project enlists the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service members, helps severely injured men and women aid and assist each other, and provides unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
