Grondin’s Food Drive

Grondin’s of Clare recently held a food drive for United Way and Volunteer Center of Clare County. They were able to collect approximately 75 lbs. of food items! What a great job by Grondin’s of Clare and their customers. Customers who donated were entered in a drawing to win a gift certificate towards a haircut or a bag of hair care products. Winners of the drawing were: Connie Lilly, Jeff Smith, Cliff Wood, Michelle Rodabaugh, Barbara Rostek, Gail Current, Joyce Lund, and Dee Sopher.

According to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, the average person in poverty in Clare County misses 4.2 meals per week, that’s more than a million meals a year. Food drives, like those held by Grondin’s of Clare help to minimize the number of meals missed.

United Way and Volunteer Center of Clare County would like to thank Grondin’s of Clare and their customers for helping those in need. People like them make our county a better place!
