Shopko And Wrigley Donate Over 60,000 Easter Eggs To Local Food Bank

OMAHA, Wis., March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Easter just got a lot sweeter for kids throughout Omaha thanks to a donation of more than 60,000 Easter eggs from Shopko and William R. Wrigley, Jr. Co., a subsidiary of Mars, Inc. to the Food Bank for the Heartland.  

"One of the best parts of being a member of the Shopko team is knowing we are making a difference in the communities we serve, not just through our local store presence, but through our charitable efforts, which are at the core of our company," said Mike Bettiga, Shopko Interim CEO and Chief Operating Officer. "We know that many local programs supported by the Food Bank for the Heartland plan Easter activities for the families and children that they serve.   Shopko wants to assist in providing a memorable holiday for them and we are happy to partner with the Food Bank to provide these special treats for area children."

The donated eggs will be used in a variety of ways among the organizations receiving them including Easter Egg hunts, Easter parties, family night events and Easter baskets.   

"Our work wouldn't be possible without the critical support of donors throughout our community," said Susan Ogborn, President & CEO of Food Bank for the Heartland. "We're grateful to Shopko for this generous donation which will serve to brighten the Easter holiday for area children."

Together, Shopko and Wrigley are donating more than 140,000 of the Easter eggs this year to organizations and charities that serve children in Shopko communities across the Midwest.
