FAREWAY PROVIDES SECOND $200,000 DONATION TO SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESSES AND THEIR EMPLOYEES

Fareway Stores, Inc. recently announced a second donation in the amount of $200,000 to the Iowa Association of Chambers of Commerce (IACC). The donation provided for up to $2,000 in gift cards to IACC chamber of commerce members in the communities Fareway serves.

Jefferson Matters: A Main Street & Chamber Community received $2,000 in gift cards, which were distributed to local small businesses. The recipients were determined based off 5 criteria related to Covid-19 challenges.

“We are excited to continue our support of small businesses and their employees during this holiday season,” said Fareway President and CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “As small businesses continue to face challenges, we are proud to again partner with IACC, which understands how best to serve its small business members during this unique economic time.”

“Thank you, Fareway, for your generosity and support of small businesses. We are pleased to partner with you in serving our local community,” said Jefferson Matters: A Main Street & Chamber Community Executive Director Reegan Hanigan.

“Our members work diligently every day to strengthen communities throughout Iowa,” said IACC Executive Director Lane Till. “Through this generous additional donation from Fareway, our members will have the ability to help support the small businesses that create the heart of each of their communities.”

In 2020, Fareway has provided nearly $500,000 in support to small businesses in partnership with IACC and local chamber of commerce members. Follow the movement on Facebook with #FarewayShopsLocal.
