The Holiday season has once again come and gone, and in the spirit of giving Chris & Kevin Schneider, owners of Mother Earth’s Storehouse, have shown their generosity and commitment to alleviating hunger in the Hudson Valley. The brothers recently presented a check for $85,000 to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. Through Mother Earth’s Preferred Customer Program, participants receive coupons, access to VIP events, member only shopping, and points for discounts on future shopping. As part of this great deal, a portion of member rewards is donated to the Food Bank. Since the program started in 2009, Mother Earth’s Storehouse has donated a total of $232,000. Thank you to Mother Earth’s Storehouse, and all of the Rewards program members who made these amazing donations possible!
