We’re strong believers in giving back to the communities we serve. Each year, Weis Markets and it's associates make direct and in-kind donations to numerous charities and organizations throughout our market area, including food banks, community-based health care organizations, schools, pet shelters, the United Way, and many other local charities.
Our annual Fight Hunger program generates hundreds of thousands of dollars in product and direct donations by our customers to local food banks, pantries, and emergency food providers. We supplement their giving with a matching corporate donation.
Our company also donates to community-based health care organizations throughout our trade area. We continue to support many worthwhile programs including clinics for the uninsured, mammography programs, women’s cardiac programs, clinics serving women facing high-risk pregnancies, and breast cancer awareness programs.
We’re proud of our associates who help make our giving possible. Thanks to them, we’re making a difference.

- American Heart Association: $416,000
