On Grocery Store Weekend, we were joined by approximately 100 students from CCH's Leaders in Exercise and Athletics Program (LEAP). The program is designed to help student athletes transition their leadership skills towards community service and serve as examples for other students to follow into charitable efforts and volunteerism.

These students have committed to Business Cares for the duration of the month and were vital in making this year's Grocery Store weekend the most successful one to date!

Thanks London for Making Grocery Store Weekend a Huge Success!

Our Business Cares Food Drive kicked off in amazing fashion this past weekend with a successful Grocery Store Weekend.

We continually are overwhelmed by the generosity of Londoners, who came out in droves on December 1st and 2nd to donate cash and non-perishable food items to our over 600 volunteers, spread out over 24 grocery stores throughout the city.

We've published a few photos on our Facebook page from the activity at various locations.

The Business Cares Food Drive got off to an overwhelmingly successful start this past weekend, thanks to the generosity of Londoners and the support of 17 stores and over 350 volunteers!

In fact, over the weekend of Dec. 3rd and 4th, we raised 87,772 pounds of food -- a marked increase over the 55,000 we raised last year and a number that exceeded our goal of 75,000 pounds for the weekend. We thought that was going to be tough, but we've learned to never underestimate the generosity of Londoners!
