Food drive at Neiman's

November 13, 2013

Clarkston's newest grocery store, Neiman's Family Market, will be collecting donations for families in need in its "Thanksgiving on the Mayflower" food drive.

"We're a community-oriented business," said John Schmidt, store director. "We're not corporate, we're right in the trenches with everyone else."

Neiman's will collect non-perishable food items for Gleaners Community Food Bank and will help fill a Mayflower moving truck set to arrive at the store to collect the food.

"The Mayflower Moving Truck will be in the Neiman's parking lot Sunday Nov. 17 from 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. with 98.7 AMP Radio broadcasting live," said Neiman's Family Marketing Coordinator Bethany Schafer.

Neiman's has invited the community to visit the store by Sunday, November 17th to support the Gleaners Community Food Bank and fill the Mayflower truck.

Customers can also drop off food at the store until the Mayflower arrives.

"Beginning Monday, Nov. 11, Neiman's will have premade bags filled with non-perishable food items that can be purchased and left at the store ready and waiting for the Mayflower to arrive," said Schafer.

Neiman's is located at 7121 Dixie Highway in Clarkston. For more information, call 248-625-6460 or check www.NeimansFamilyMarket. com.
