Harris Teeter, Wash. Nationals Fight Hunger
Harris Teeter has teamed up with the Washington Nationals on a food drive running through July 8, in support of local food bank partners.
In May, Charlotte, N.C.-based Harris Teeter donated $225,000 to food banks in the D.C. area and is hosting the food drive to help generate additional awareness. Donations made at Harris Teeter locations during the food drive will benefit Capital Area Food Bank and Loudoun Interfaith Relief; the beneficiaries will be displayed on posters placed on the collection bins in each store.
As well as donating food at local Harris Teeter stores, Nationals fans can bring nonperishable food items to Nationals Park on July 6 and July 7, when the team faces off against the San Diego Padres. Volunteers will collect donations outside Center Field Gate from the time gates open through the fourth inning. Donations made at the ballpark will go to Capital Area Food Bank.
Fans who donate three nonperishable food items at Nationals Park will get two tickets to one of two future games, while supplies last. This year, for the first time, the first 1,000 fans to donate Harris Teeter Brands canned goods on July 6 and July 7 will also receive $5 worth of NatsBucks.
