Southampton Foodland and its customers once again rose to the occasion when they raised funds for the Salvation Army Food Bank.

The annual Christmas season campaign raised almost $7,500 that was turned into grocery shopping gift cards ranging from $100 to $500.

“The generosity of our community never ceases to amaze me,” said Foodland owner, Martino Capalano.  “Our customers just kept on giving to help out. It is all about community.”

While funds are important, Major Connie Armstrong of the Salvation Army, wearing a clear face shield, pointed out that it is also the “… rapport that Foodland has developed with us.  We appreciate  so much what Foodland has done and what Martino continues to do for us. It is through community partnerships that we can make a difference.”
