Festival Foods has announced that Safe Harbor Humane Society and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will be the southern Wisconsin beneficiaries of the company’s “icon” campaign.
Festival Foods operates stores in Kenosha, Somers, Mount Pleasant and Paddock Lake.
The campaign, which allows shoppers to donate at checkout, raised more than $291,822 in 2018 for nonprofit community organizations throughout Wisconsin.
Each year, nonprofit organizations can apply through the Festival Foods website to hold a 15-day icon campaign. After all submissions are in, associates at each Festival Foods location vote on the nonprofits they want to support.
“We’d like to thank our guests — they’re the ones who make this program happen,” said Mark Skogen, Festival Foods president and CEO.
