Stinker Stores will take part in this year’s Stomp Out Hunger, an effort to provide as much help to families in need as possible this holiday season.
From Nov. 4 to the 14, each store in Idaho will give customers a chance at the register to add to their purchase with a donation to The Idaho Foodbank. Stores will compete to raise the most money.
In 2015, customers of Stinker Stores donated more than $48,000. The company added another $20,000, totaling enough to provide the food for 276,428 meals. This year, Stinker hopes to collect more than $54,000 in customer donations. They have also pledged to renew a match of donations dollar for dollar up to $20,000.
The Foodbank is attempting to raise $1.8 million dollars in the final two months of the year. They plan to distribute the food for 2.5 million meals this holiday season.
