ENDICOTT (WBNG) -- Organizations across the Southern Tier participated in Giving Tuesday this year, a day all about giving back.
The Weis Markets store in Endicott collected donations for the annual Bandera Family Christmas Dinner, as well as made a $500 donation itself.
The organization is celebrating its 30th year serving a free Christmas dinner each year, now at three different locations in our area.
Weis Markets Store Manager Christopher Moulton explains, "[the organization] certainly has a huge impact in our community, so we're thankful for what they do for our community and we're as a company very proud to provide this help for them."
For host of the dinner, Bill Bandera, he calls being chosen as the donation recipient, "an honor."
Even though a few bucks may seem small, Bandera says just $10 can feed a family.
"Every bit of it helps us make every year a success," said Bandera.
This marks the second year in a row the Endicott store chose the dinner event as its Giving Tuesday recipient.
All 8 Weis Markets stores in our area had the chance to participate in the same kind of donation process.
