Pepsi Beverages Company partnered with us today to present a $1,000 donation to Variety – the Children’s Charity. Funds were raised during the Pepsi "Iowa and Nebraska Annual Market Operating Meeting" in Kansas City during December 7-11, 2015.
“Throughout the duration of the annual meeting, attendees were allowed to wear jeans, if they donated to a local charity,” said Pepsi Beverages Company GM Market Director Andy Dougherty. “We selected Variety – the Children’s Charity, as our recipient and worked with Fareway to make today’s presentation possible.”
Proceeds will provide funding to more than 90 charities throughout Iowa and Nebraska for capital projects, essential medical equipment, special programming, and transportation.
“We are proud to work with vendor partners, like Pepsi Beverages Company, who go above and beyond to provide critical support to children in-need,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “Their generosity shows commitment to the company philosophy of making an enduring impact on the communities where they live and work.”
