Avon, NY..-based Quicklee’s partnered with several local food manufacturers to create 400 healthy, locally sourced snack packs, which were delivered to 18 different fire and EMT workers in celebration of National EMS Week.
“We are honored to support the hard-working first responders in our area,” said Ken Perelli, VP, Quicklee’s. “They offer our communities a service that is critically important, especially during these uncertain times, and we wanted to offer a token of our gratitude.”
The snack packs were a collaborative effort between Quicklee’s, its local distribution partner Healthy U and local food manufacturers including NY Chips, Partyka Pumpkin Seeds and The Perfect Granola, which are all members of Quicklee’s Go Local program. Businesses that are a part of this program are given marketing, advertising and promotional support in order to help build awareness of the many products produced in the area.
“Through this donation, we are not only showing our appreciation for our first responders, but we are also promoting the local food manufacturers that are so vital to the success of our local economy,” said Perelli. “Quicklee’s has and will continue to do whatever we can to connect and strengthen the communities that we serve and are happy to call home.”
While the snack packs were created especially for this EMS Week initiative and are not yet available for sale, the individual Go Local products included in the snack packs can be found in the Go Local displays at Quicklee’s locations.
Quicklee’s, a locally and family owned gas station and convenience store chain, has been providing a fast, clean and friendly experience for 25 years. The chain currently operates 21 locations and plans to open several new stores across Upstate N.Y. in the coming year.
