TOPS FRIENDLY MARKETS PRESENTS HERITAGE CENTERS FOUNDATION WITH 100 GIFTS FOR CHILDREN
WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Tops Friendly Markets, a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York, northern Pennsylvania and western Vermont announced today that the company presented 100 holiday gifts in support of Buffalo-based Heritage Centers Foundation. Heritage Centers is an agency with more than 60 years of experience delivering comprehensive services to individuals with developmental disabilities. The packages were comprised of wish list items requested by children and young adults who receive services from Heritage Centers. “There is a true sense of passion and support within the Tops team,” said David Prisaznuk, director of financial accounting and reporting at Tops Markets and Heritage Centers Foundation board member. “This year we increased our goal to purchase gifts for 100 children and young adults, and I am pleased to say that we met that goal thanks to the extreme generosity of our associates.”

“Seeing firsthand the generosity of Tops associates was such a powerful experience,” said Susan Navarro, development coordinator at Heritage Centers Foundation. “They’re supporting our program participants, who otherwise would not have a Christmas.”

At Tops, the program is referred to as the giving tree whereby ornaments with wish-list items are hung on the tree. Tops associates then have the opportunity to purchase gifts from a child or young adult’s wish list; individuals who participate in the agency’s programs range from infants to teenagers. Tops has partnered with Heritage Centers in the giving tree program for nearly 15 years. # # #
