The new menu item features sliced deli chicken, avocado, bacon, cucumber, lettuce, tomato, sprouts, cheddar cheese, ranch dressing on a toasted sourdough bread. $1 of each sandwich purchased will be donated to AHIP to help keep local families in need safe, warm and dry in their homes.
In 2020, Tiger is committed to donating labor, tank sets and other services valued up to $10,000 by the end of December as well as sponsoring the Housing Hero-level of AHIP’s annual Safe at Home efforts. The local fuel company invested more than $10,000 in 2019, helping five AHIP client families with heating deficiencies and four families with critical home repair projects.
“We’re really excited about the opportunity to support AHIP in our Markets. It’s important for us to give back to our neighbors in need and we’re thrilled to partner with our loyal customers in doing more for these local families. Many in our community are dealing with inadequate heating and cooling during this challenging time and we feel it is important to do our part,” said President Gordon Sutton.
AHIP receives five to 10 calls each week from local families in need of emergency home repairs, larger rehabilitations and energy retrofits. Last year, AHIP and its supporters helped 223 people in 103 homes with 187 critical repairs and energy upgrades.
The sandwich will be available for sale at the convenience chain’s four deli locations: The Market at Bellair, The Market at Mill Creek, The Market at Preston and The Market at Ruckersville beginning July 6.
