Southern States celebrates successful food drive

The 2012 Southern States Holiday Food Drive succeeded in collecting nearly two and a half tons of canned, boxed and other stable food items for food banks and charitable organizations in 36 cities and towns in the company’s south and mid-Atlantic regions.

The drive was held Nov. 12 through Dec. 16, with collections delivered to various community organizations and groups for distribution to the needy.

“We are very grateful to our customers for their generosity and to our retail employees for the efforts they put in to designing the collection boxes and holiday displays,” said Steve Patterson, Southern States’ vice president for marketing and communications.

“This is our second year for the Holiday Food Drive, and once again, our stores really got behind it. It’s been a great experience for everyone involved, and a lot of deserving families had a more joyful holiday season because of this effort. We look forward to doing it again next year.”

Southern States is a Richmond, Virginia-based farm supply and service cooperative, founded in 1923 that now has more than 300,000 farmer-members. As one of the nation’s largest agricultural cooperatives, it provides a wide range of farm inputs, including fertilizer, seed, livestock feed and pet food, animal health supplies and petroleum products, as well as other items for the farm and home.

The cooperative serves its members and non-member customers through 1,200 retail outlets. Please visit http://www.southernstates.com for more information.
