KNOXVILLE, TN (SPECIAL TO 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 January 4th to February 7th in Knoxville area Food City locations. During the campaign, shoppers were invited to make a dollar contribution at the check-out to help their friends and neighbors in need.

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

Food City officials awarded these proceeds to Project Help representatives on Friday morning at the Food City at 9565 Middlebrook Pike at Knoxville. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/27/2023-6AM)
