Norfolk, Va. – Want to support the recovery efforts in South Carolina? Food Lion is donating $25,000 while also partnering with customers in 10 states to help those displaced by severe flooding.

From Oct. 6 through Oct. 13, Food Lion customers can donate at any store.

“For nearly 60 years, Food Lion has been a proud neighbor in many local communities across our 10 states,” said Food Lion President Meg Ham. “Part of being a good neighbor is being there to lend a hand to support communities during a time of need. Caring for our customers and communities is an integral part of who we are as a company and what our associates do every day. And, it’s times like these where we have the responsibility to be there for our communities in and around our stores affected by these historic floods.”

Food Lion is also sending water, ice, pre-packaged meals and snacks, canned goods and bleach to the victims.
