KNOXVILLE, TN. (WLAF)- For more than 20 years, Food City has been proud to host its annual Project Help campaign to provide heating assistance to local residents in need during the cold weather season. 

The promotion, which is cosponsored by Project Help ran from Jan. 4 to Feb. 7  in Knoxville area Food City locations. During the campaign, shoppers were invited to make a $1 contribution at the check-out to help their friends and neighbors in need.

Thanks to the support and generosity of Food City customers and associates, this year’s Project Help campaign raised a total of $57,450.

Food City will be awarding these proceeds to Project Help representatives on Fri. March 23 at 10am at its 9565 Middlebrook Pike store in Knoxville.
