Shortly before Thanksgiving, the people of RiteWay began a competition. They were separated into 8 teams and given the challenge to see which team could bring in the most donations for the McLeod County Emergency Food Shelf by noon on December 21st.
Donations of food or cash were accepted with each $1 donated count as 1 pound of food. The two teams who worked together to bring in the most donations would be allowed to leave two hours early, with pay, on December 29th.
The goal was to raise the equivalent of 2,520 pounds of food – the amount they raised last year. They didn’t reach that goal. They topped it!
Everyone really banded together and donated 2,423 pounds of food as well as $460 in cash – the equivalent of 2,883 pounds of food!
While the two winning teams were Sam’s Singing Snowmen with the equivalent of 1,070 pounds of food donated and Hermey’s Hygienists with the equivalent of 440 of donated, every person at RiteWay was extremely generous. Every team had donations with over 100 pounds!
