Grocery Outlet's Independence From hunger drive a huge success
Grocery Outlet's Independence from Hunger Drive was a huge success. The Prineville branch participated in the annual fundraiser, held by all Grocery Outlet stores, during the month of July. Storewide, Grocery Outlet raised $10,550. Top cashier fundraisers include Bethany Kelso who led the way raising $1,500, Cathy Toll in second having raised $1,020 and Karla Miller in third at $885.
"We really want to thank the people of Prineville for helping us surpass two separate goals in our fundraising efforts this year!" said Grocery Outlet co-owner Rhonda Bourgo (pictured at left). "It's not easy keeping up the fundraising for an entire month, but it's worth it to be able to give a local partner that much money to help others in tough times. 100% of everything we raised will stay in Crook County!"
