Payless Market and you - helping to fight hunger locally

For the second year in a row Payless IGA has held a 'Help Fight Hunger' locally food drive to benefit the Copperopolis Food Pantry. For every $10 donation, Payless Market would fill a bag with $20 of IGA products.

Thanks to the 151 people who puchased $10 vouchers, IGA was able to donate 2 full pallets of non perishable food the the local food pantry. Each pallet can carry up to 15 cases of food.

Manager Tammy Andrada is very proud of the program, feeling that it is important to help those in our community as well as to help restock the pantry shelves after the holidays.

Payless IGA has long been a large supporter of the Copperopolis Food Pantry, thanking the community for their support and their business, which helps them in turn give back to our community.
