AMARILLO, Texas (KAMR/KCIT) — Officials with the Maverick Boys & Girls Club of Amarillo announced that the Panhandle Gives campaign started with a bang as Enterprise 33 Inc., Market 33, Fiesta Foods, and Top Value have already raised $30,000 for three local organizations.
Officials detailed that Enterprise 33 presented the checks to Advo Companies Inc., Maverick Boys & Girls Club of Amarillo, and Meals on Wheels in Pampa at 10 a.m. on Nov. 18 at Market 33, located at 5811 S. Western.
“It’s extremely humbling, said Jarrett Copheranham, President and CEO of Market 33 and Fiesta Foods.” “The fact that we had the opportunity to do that is amazing, we would not have been able to do it without the partnership of our customers and our guests who bought into the program as well and so it felt really good to see what a large impact loose change can make over a period of time.”
Advo, plans on using the money to build their hope village.
“We take care of adults with special needs, said Jeremy Bradford Advo Hope Opportunities Vice President.” “This is actually going to go towards hope village which is a transitional employment center to where we teach the clients more outside job skills.”
The owner of Enterprise 33, Jarrett Copheranham explained that the campaign aims to help as many people as possible through the charities that are receiving the funds, according to officials.
Officials added that the Executive Director of the Maverick, Donna Soria said that “she is grateful for the store coming up with this idea because they have made it easy for many of their customers to participate in the campaign.”
