Marketplace swag finds better home in wake of show
BOSTON The National Association of Chain Drug Stores announced Thursday that Marketplace exhibitors donated nearly 10,000 lbs. of products to The Greater Boston Food Bank. Rather than ending up in the garbage or adding up to hefty shipping charges for vendors who attended Marketplace, the items will find a much better home among some of Boston’s neediest families and individuals.
“This is a generous donation from NACDS, and it comes at a time when more people are out of work and in need of food assistance. The association’s conference exhibitors show terrific corporate citizenship,” said Catherine D’Amato, president and CEO of the Greater Boston Food Bank. “I know our member-hunger relief agencies will welcome this food because so many are trying to feed more people.”
Items donated included HBA products, food and beverages, cosmetics and toiletries, and will go to families and individuals in need served by the Greater Boston Food Bank, as well as other nonprofit organizations throughout the area.
“We are pleased with the opportunity to help those in need and are grateful to participating companies for their contributions,” said NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson. “Given the current economic situation, we hope that this donation will assist low-income families and others in need. We thank the Greater Boston Food Bank for distributing these donations.”
