THANK YOU WESTERN NEW YORK!!
Because of your generosity, our annual Food 2 Familes food drive was another huge success! On Friday Western New Yorkers from all walks of life brought food and cash donations to Tops Markets all across the area.

The food was taken to the Food Bank of Western New York to be weighed, sorted, and packed. From there it will be distributed to needy families for the holidays and year-round.
Food Bank of WNY president and CEO Marylou Borowiak expects this year's collection to be a record-setter.
Last year, 97,000 pounds of food was collected.
Volunteers are still weighing donations from the six main Tops locations, but donations from the 2 On Your Side Weather Machine food drive and little brown bags of hope collected at outlying Tops stores total 57,000 pounds.
