60 Second Shopping Spree Raises Money for Food Bank
Shop to Stop Hunger
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
A 60 second grocery shopping spree is helping feed the hungry in central Virginia.
Four celebrities from radio and the community tore through Reid’s Supermarket in Charlottesville Sunday night for the Shop to Stop Hunger.
The fundraiser benefits the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
“This time of year people are really struggling to have enough resources for food,” said Blue Ridge Area Food Bank CEO Michael McKee. “So it's a choice off in between heating your home and buying groceries.”
Each personality had sixty seconds to run through the store and grab as many groceries as possible.
Michael Guthrie of Roy Wheeler won the competition by collecting almost $282 in groceries. Home Instead's Jeanne McCusker and radio's Jay James and Les Sinclair were close contenders.
Blue Ridge Area Food Bank expects this year's competition will bring in more than last year's earnings of $2,000.
