Read My Feature Story on Gapers Block

8 Mar

I had the opportunity to follow one of Save-A-Lot’s street teams as they surprised over 7,000 people with grocery bags with $12.00 worth of food them for a feature story for Gapers Block.

Save-A-Lot Street Team

This was a wonderful way for the store to introduce themselves to their new neighbors. Initially, people were not opening their doors. However, as they saw the team walking down the street and leaving bags on porches and doorknobs, many came out to thank the team.

To learn more about the reactions to the free groceries, read my story at Gaper’s Block.
