The Pamida Foundation announces this year’s donations to communities have increased 30 percent. Contributions to local food banks and gift-tree programs total over half a million dollars.

This year’s contributions to local food banks will be used to help stock shelves with food for families in need this holiday season. In addition, numerous Pamida stores across the Midwest are organizing local food drives to coordinate with the Foundation donations.

The Pamida Foundation contributions toward gift-tree programs in their communities assist with the purchase of holiday gifts for those who are less fortunate.

“During these tough economic times, the Pamida Foundation is proud to give back to individuals and families who need it the most,” said Jessica Strohman, executive director of the Pamida Foundation. “We are proud to partner with our local food banks to help increase much needed donations this season and put food on the table for families this holiday. And we are excited about our gift-tree programs offering a joyful and memorable holiday for the families within our communities.”

The Hodgenville Pamida store contributes to the Foundation, which supports more than 800 charitable organizations that focus on education, health and social services.
