Tops Friendly Markets announced the launch of its 2021 “Free Gas and Grocery Campaign.” The promotion will run from Oct. 24 through Nov. 6 at all participating Tops locations.
Last year, the campaign raised $75,350 for Oishei Children’s. Since the campaign’s inception in 2006, more than $1.4 million has been raised for the hospital with this program, and over $7 million from Tops through other campaign efforts.
A press release stated, “During the campaign, Tops shoppers are encouraged to make a difference for families in their own backyard while having a chance to win a year's worth of gas and groceries valued at $10,000 from Tops Friendly Markets. Customers can purchase a $1 ticket and support the dedicated and caring staff at the Oishei Children's Hospital who are making miracles happen every day for our most precious asset – our children.”
Tops Friendly Markets CEO Frank Curci said, “At Tops, it is our belief that, by enhancing the quality of life for children through education and excellent health care, we build a strong future together. Our support of the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital and Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo over the years has a long and rich history and we are proud to support such a wonderful institution that provides the much-needed care for those in need in our community.”
