For almost 100 years, the GIANT Company has been actively involved in the community to connect families for a better future and work on eliminating hunger, especially among children. At the end of 2020, MASD encouraged our District residents to participate in GIANT's Feeding School Kids initiative. From January 4, 2021 through February 28, 2021, customers at GIANT were invited to round up their grocery purchases to the nearest dollar or convert their CHOICE points into a donation for local public schools' food programs. GIANT committed to match the first $1.5 million in donations and then divide the total amount raised between the participating schools. 

Through the Feeding School Kids initiative, The GIANT Company and their customers raised more than $3.3 million to address the issue of childhood hunger. As a result, Bob Tweedy, the Store Manager of the Middletown GIANT, presented Dr. Lori A. Suski with a check for $14,221 to be used for the MASD Food Service Program. This was made possible by YOU...the residents of Middletown who were willing to round up their purchase totals or sacrifice their GIANT points! We are so grateful for the support of our community and the partnership with the Middletown GIANT. 

After the check presentation, Mr. Tweedy expressed his appreciation for the many MAHS students who are employees at the Middletown GIANT. He noted that they are dependable, responsible and hard working and the store greatly appreciates our high school students. What a tremendous compliment to the District! GIANT has current openings and they would like to have more MAHS students join their team. The flexible hours and great location are a plus for busy students. Interested students may contact the store. 

MASD is so grateful for the ongoing partnership with the Middletown GIANT. Their donations and support of events has saved the District money on countless occasions. Our local business partners make such a difference in the lives of our students and families. Thank you, GIANT for your support!
