Proceeds to Benefit FeedMore WNY

WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Nothing rally’s Western New Yorkers quite like supporting our favorite hometown team and so when 26 Shirts approached Tops Friendly Markets to help release its newest design it was a no brainer. 26 Shirts latest design, sold exclusively at Tops for a limited time, will certainly appeal to the “Mafia” fans of our favorite football team, all while doing what Buffalonians do best – give back to an organization near and dear to both Tops and 26 Shirts’ hearts. With every purchase of this $19.99 t-shirt at your participating Tops Friendly Markets store, a portion of each sale will be donated to FeedMore WNY. “FeedMore WNY is honored to be chosen to benefit from the newest t-shirt design from 26 Shirts,” Tara A. Ellis, president and CEO of FeedMore WNY said. “FeedMore WNY welcomes everyone like family and in 2020, that resulted in serving nearly 16 million meals to 180,800 individuals throughout Niagara, Erie, Chautauqua and Cattaraugus counties. We are extremely grateful to 26 Shirts and Tops Markets for supporting the work of FeedMore WNY. We encourage the WNY community to participate in this innovative fundraiser which will allow FeedMore WNY to continue to meet the ongoing need for food assistance as a result of the pandemic.” Shirts will be available at most Tops locations throughout Western New York beginning this Thursday, August 12 and in select Rochester stores beginning Saturday, August 14. ###
