“Our local schools need additional funds more than ever right now as they continue to remain impacted by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,” said Matt Simon, chief marketing officer and VP of marketing and urban retail at The Giant Co. “Giant has been a strong supporter of local schools, and we hope in this time of added need, these dollars can be used to support remote learning and the distribution of meals, ensuring that our students continue to thrive both academically and nutritionally.”
