BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Wilson Farms raised $16,553 for Operation Homefront's New York Chapter during a one-day collection, held on Sept. 11.
"The success of this campaign is better then anything we could have ever expected," Paul Nanula, CEO and president of Wilson Farms, said in a released statement. "This just goes to show that the hearts of our customers are larger then life. We cannot thank them enough for their continued generosity."
Customers visited Wilson Farms locations throughout New York to donate to the cause, which helps provide emergency assistance for military troops and their families.
"We are pleased and honored to have the support of Wilson Farms," said Operation Homefront chapter president Tracy Handschuh. "It is through the generosity of companies like Wilson Farms and the extraordinary support of its customers that we are able to serve military families in need across New York. We are indeed grateful that so many have come together to help support Operation Homefront's mission, despite the present economic challenges we all face."
Additionally, the c-store retailer announced it will give away free coffee from 6 to 10 a.m. today. Customers can go to any local Wilson Farms store and fill up a 12-ounce cup of coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate or tea for free, the company stated.
"This is a chance for our regular customers to enjoy a cup of coffee on the house and perhaps for anyone who has yet to try our coffee to taste what a great quality product it is," said Nanula. "This would be a perfect time to try our fall feature flavors like Harvest Spice Coffee or Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino."
