Russ’s Market and Super Saver are working with Community Action to raise funds to provide care kits for families in need. The goal is to raise $7,500 by August 16, to provide the kits to at least 500 vulnerable residents.
“Access to basic needs items, like personal hygiene supplies, is critical to an individual’s ability to reach economic stability,” says Vi See, Community Action Executive Director. “We are proud to partner with Russ’s Market and Super Saver to raise funds to supply personal hygiene, cleaning, and baby care kits to those who are working hard, but struggling to make ends meet.”
A donation of $10 can fund a Personal Care Kit with basics such as soap, toothpaste, and deodorant; $15 can fund a Home Care Kit with basics such as dish soap, laundry detergent, and all-purpose cleaner; and $20 can fund a Baby Care Kit with basics such as diapers, baby wash, and baby lotion. All items will be provided to Community Action by Russ’s Market and Super Saver at a discounted rate.
“We’re excited to give back in this way,” said Pat Raybould, President of B&R Stores, which includes Russ’s Market and Super Saver. “As an employee-owned business with lots of love for our community, this partnership seemed like the perfect opportunity to address a local need.”
Kit supplies purchased with campaign funds will be distributed to Community Action participants, including those served at The Gathering Place, Head Start, Lincoln Community Response, and others.
