Posted Nov 20th, 2017 by Kirsten Ingram  Category: General News

 

Tony Packo’s is proud to announce its partnership with the Salvation Army of
Northwest Ohio to support our community and surrounding areas. Packo’s and
the Salvation Army will work together throughout the year to raise money to be
distributed by the Salvation Army for support of its many services, which are far
reaching. “The Salvation Army touches so many lives in positive ways, not only
through their assistance efforts but through their coordination with other county
agencies to care for those in need,” said Emily Bennett, President of Tony
Packo’s. “Giving Tuesday will be the first of many events Packo’s will host to help
those among us who need a helping hand.”

Get a Packo’s Gift Card and Support The Salvation Army – Giving Tuesday Matching Donation

Buy Packo’s gift cards and support The Salvation Army’s local programs. On November 28, National “Giving Tuesday”, Packo’s will match the amount of any gift card purchases at a Packo’s location or on their website and donate the proceeds to The Salvation Army Northwest Ohio Area Services. Packo’s is partnering with The Salvation Army and Giving Tuesday is the first in a series of opportunities to give back with a Packo’s purchase.

The Salvation Army Northwest Ohio Area Services provides assistance for those in need in Lucas, Wood, Ottawa, Fulton and Henry counties. Services vary from school supplies, holiday assistance, and emergency disaster services, to providing food, utility, rent, and clothing assistance. Also in Toledo there is a program called RISE that offers case management services for those involved in or at risk for human trafficking. In 2016 The Salvation Army served over 31,000 people in the area by providing assistance through their programs.

Through the purchase of Packo’s gift cards on November 28, customers will be giving back to help The Salvation Army assist those in need here in our community. Stop by a Packo’s location or visit their website to participate in the Giving Tuesday Gift Card Match.
