Weis Markets Awards Gift Cards In Support of KPB’s Great American Cleanup of PA

Weis Markets, Inc., the newest sponsor of the Keep PA Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup of PA, Wednesday announced the winners of their donated gift cards.
A total of twenty gift cards were given randomly to Great American Cleanup of PA registered participants from Allentown, Harrisburg, Lancaster, State College, York, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and the Trash Free Potomac.  
Black Moshannon State Park, Penns Valley Conservation Association and the Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority were each selected to receive a Weis Markets gift card to help support their efforts to beautify and clean locations in Centre County to celebrate Earth Day.   
“We used our gift card to provide refreshments and lunch as a way of thanks to the volunteers who made time in their busy schedules to join us for our Great American Cleanup of PA event,” said Rod Fye of the Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority.  “Volunteers are an asset to our community. We were able to show our appreciation thanks to Weis Markets.”  
“Weis Markets is pleased to partner with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful,” said Patti Olenick, Sustainability Manager.  “It is part of our corporate commitment to sustainability, being good stewards of the environment and giving back to the communities we serve.  We’ve been serving Pennsylvania communities for more than 100 years and we are excited to be part of the Great American Cleanup of PA.”
“We value the partnership with Weis Markets, Inc. Their donation of gift cards provides a fun and valuable incentive to participate in the Great American Cleanup,” states Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. “Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and Weis Markets share the goal of promoting a sustainable environment and livable communities. The Great American Cleanup empowers citizens to do that locally.”
Weis Markets, Inc. joins other 2014 event supporters: the Department of Environmental Protection, PennDOT, PA Waste Industries Association, the PA Food Merchants Association, Waste Management, Republic Services, Steel Recycling Institute, and the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority.
