(MAHONING VALLEY) TOPS MARKETS AND THEIR CUSTOMERS JOIN FORCES TO SUPPORT FOOD BANKS ACROSS NEO
Cleveland, OH - This holiday season Tops Markets is offering their customers opportunities to help support regional food banks in their mission to feed those in need. Through various events and promotions, Tops customers will have the opportunity to give back to their community and help brighten the holidays for needy families. Organizations that will be benefit from these opportunities include Cleveland Foodbank, Akron-Canton Food Bank, Second Harvest Foodbank of North Central Ohio and Second Harvest Food Bank of the Mahoning Valley.

"Our customers have shown their dedication to local food banks and the Northeast Ohio community in the past," said Dennis Hanley, regional vice president, Tops Markets. "I'm sure this year they will once again prove how generous Northeast Ohioans can be." Last year, Tops customers who donated $1 at the checkout helped to raise over $57,000 for Northeast Ohio food banks, including $1,100 for Second Harvest of the Mahoning Valley.

Through November and December, Tops customers will have a couple of options to help support Second Harvest of the Mahoning Valley.

The program runs November 13th through December 3rd, 2005. All proceeds raised will help support the food banks and Salvation Army units this holiday season.
