Art Van Collects 15,000 Pounds of Food for Southeast Michigan Food Drive
Art Van Furniture partnered with Detroit’s WXYZ-TV for the 10th annual “Together We Can” community food drive to benefit Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, collecting more than 15,000 pounds of food.
This year's campaign, which ran from Tuesday, Nov. 6 through Friday, Nov. 30, will provide 12,520 meals to families in need across Southeastern Michigan.
"The generosity shown by our viewers and Art Van Furniture shoppers during the past 10 years represents the true meaning of the holidays," said Mike Murri, vice president and general manager of WXYZ-TV and WMYD-TV. "This annual campaign has an enormous impact on the lives of those less fortunate in our community."
Metro Detroiters opened their pantries and brought cans, bags and boxes of food to 18 Art Van Furniture stores located in the communities served by Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. The retailer's participating Michigan showrooms were in Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, Bloomfield, Canton, Chesterfield Township, Clinton Township, Dearborn, Drayton Plains, Howell, Livonia, Novi, Royal Oak, Southfield, Sterling Heights, Taylor, Warren and Westland.
