Tony Packo’s™ and their customers support The Salvation Army

Posted: Wednesday, February 21, 2018 by: Karen Meek | Category: General News

On February 22, 2018, Tony Packo’s will present The Salvation Army with a check for $5,765, raised through the Giving Tuesday, Pickles Against Poverty, and Giving Back Gift Card campaigns which ran in all five Tony Packo's locations during the month of December 2017. The check will be presented to Major Scott Kelly and other representatives of The Salvation Army by Tony Packo’s CEO, James Harmon and Tony Packo, Jr.

Packo’s customers were given the opportunity to help support the community through multiple initiatives. On National Giving Tuesday, Packo’s made an in-kind donation of the value of any Gift Card purchased that day to the Salvation Army. During the Pickles Against Poverty campaign, Packo’s donated a $1.00 for every full order of pickles and fifty cents for every half order of pickles placed during several weeks in December. Over 2,600 orders of fried pickles were served. For nine days prior to Christmas, any Gift Card purchase of $25.00 or more was matched not only with a $5.00 donation to the Salvation Army but with a $5.00 give back to the customer.

These opportunities mark the beginning of a partnership between the Hungarian restaurant group and The Salvation Army. Packo’s is committed to working with the Salvation Army throughout the year to support their missions and to assist those in need in Toledo and the surrounding communities. “This was a natural partnership. We share the same core values and commitment to the community as the Salvation Army” says James Harmon, CEO of Tony Packo’s Toledo, LLC.

"The Salvation Army has been privileged to serve our friends and neighbors in the Toledo area for more than 130 years. We are honored to have this opportunity to partner with Tony Packo's in raising awareness of the growing needs our communities face, and to help raise the much-needed funds to meet those needs." Major Scott A. Kelly, Area Coordinator for The Salvation Army Northwest Ohio Area Services.
