Utah Grocery Stores Help Save Summer Camp

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Utah Grocery Stores Help Save Summer Camp
Macey’s and Harmons Donate Items to MDA Summer Camp after Theft

Salt Lake City, UT (August 11, 2017) Macey’s and Harmons are making sure campers at MDA Summer Camp have a great time. Just days before camp, the Muscular Dystrophy Association in Utah experienced a robbery that left the non-profit organization without many of the supplies needed for camp. After hearing about the situation, Macey’s and Harmons stepped in and donated the needed replacement items including goldfish crackers, fruit snacks, juice, paper products, coloring books, laundry detergent, and more for the excepted 200 campers this week and next.

“We heard about MDA’s situation and immediately wanted to help. It wasn’t even a thought, just a question ‘how can we help?’” said Amy Street, store director at West Jordan Macey’s. “We work with MDA every year during the annual shamrock drive and know how much of an impact they make on these kids. We couldn’t let them not have a great summer camp.”

“We are thrilled to team up with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and bring a little joy to those at summer camp. I know how it affects daily life, and know that these small acts of kindness can impact many for good. Together we can make life a little better,” said Jeff Payne, store director at Harmon’s South Jordan.

For many kids with muscular dystrophy and related neuromuscular diseases, summer camp is the most exciting part of the summer. The camp gives them the chance to see old friends and make new ones, participate in camp activities, and play in a barrier-free environment. Camp is held at Camp K in Emigration Canyon.

“We are extremely grateful to Macey’s and Harmons for reaching out and replacing our lost summer camp items immediately,” said MDA Utah Executive Director Lisa Miller. “They both have been valuable partners to us and amazing supporters of MDA families in Utah for many years.”

Spanish Fork Macey’s Bagger Named Utah’s Best

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Spanish Fork Macey’s Bagger Named Utah’s Best Bagger
Kaylee Hudson will compete at National Best Bagger Contest in 2018

Salt Lake City, Utah (August 3, 2017) Utah’s Best Bagger can be found a Spanish Fork Macey’s. Kaylee Hudson was named “Best Bagger” at the Utah Food Industry Association’s state Best Bagger competition yesterday. The contest was held at Thanksgiving Point and brought the top baggers from 24 stores face to face to claim the title of Utah’s Best Bagger. Kaylee will have several months to prepare before they head to Las Vegas, Nevada in February to represent Utah in the National Best Bagger Competition.

“It’s great being able to represent my store and show how important baggers are for our guests. It’s important to make sure everything is bagged correctly so guests receive their items undamaged and in great condition,” said Kaylee Hudson.

The Best Bagger competition is sponsored by the National Grocers Association. The competition evaluates baggers on speed, how heavy each bag is, and how products are grouped and organized inside each sack. Baggers of any age can compete. The national winner is selected during a contest at the National Grocer Associations annual conference and receives a $10,000 cash prize.

“We are so proud of Kaylee and can’t wait to have her represent us and Utah at the National competition,” said Steve Holm, district manager for Macey’s. “Our teams really care about our guests and I think the way our baggers pack their groceries shows that too.”
