Marshall, MN – Runnings, Your Home, Farm and Outdoor Store, is giving back to the communities they serve and fighting hunger this Thanksgiving. Shopping at Runnings the day before Thanksgiving will help feed those in need this Thanksgiving and throughout the holiday season. The Runnings “Give N’ Take” promotion will take place in all 39 Runnings stores Wednesday, Nov. 25. Customers can bring in at least one non-perishable item to any Runnings. All items will then be donated to a food shelf in the area. Runnings customers who donate at least one item will receive a scratch off ticket worth a chance to win a variety of prizes including Runnings gift cards and discounts to use this holiday season.
“Hunger takes a heavy toll on certain members of most communities,” said Dennis Reed, Owner, Runnings. “We wanted to do something special to help support food shelves that are so very important in aiding people who are in need all year long, but especially at this time of year.”
According to Hunger in America.org, one in six people in America face hunger. In addition to the donations from Runnings customers, Runnings and its team members will also make food donations.
