Giant opens new store, donates $50K to Extraordinary Give

By Sandra Levy - 11/21/2018
Giant Food Stores officially cut the ribbon on its newest Lancaster area store while announcing a $50,000 donation to the Extraordinary Give.

Extraordinary Give is Lancaster County’s largest day of giving, with nearly 500 local organizations supporting education, health, children and families, and the environment. Hosted by the Lancaster County Community Foundation, the 2017 Extraordinary Give generated $8.6 million in only 24 hours.

Giant joined leading event sponsors Rodgers & Associates, High Foundation and Steinman Foundation/LNP Media Group in creating the largest stretch pool to date of nearly $600,000 that will go directly to participating organizations.

Giant made $1,000 donations to the following organizations: A Week Away Foundation, Brighter Day Foundation, Grace Church at Willow Valley, Lampeter-Strasburg School District, Lancaster General, Penn Manor School District, Rotary Club of Lancaster – South, Water Street Mission, West Lampeter Township Police Department and Willow Street Fire Company.

“We are excited to celebrate the opening of our new Willow Valley Square store by recognizing the good work of more than 500 local nonprofit organizations with a ‘Giant’ give today,” Willow Valley Square Giant store manager Todd Kinter said. “Giant understands the vital work being done by these organizations all year long, and we are proud to contribute to the Extraordinary Give while helping to make Lancaster County a better place to work and live.”

The Willow Valley Square Giant features fresh products from local farms and suppliers in an easier-to-shop layout. The new store includes an expanded market fresh produce department with more than 350 fresh produce items coupled with Giant's signature full-service deli, meat and seafood, bakery and floral departments. The Willow Valley Square Giant also offers an in-store café with an expanded selection of both prepared and hot foods, made-to-order sandwiches and sushi.
