2020 was a challenging year for everyone.

It's probably the most overused sentence of the year, but it's true. It was a year of distance and division, uncertainty, and isolation.

All things considered, the team at feels incredibly blessed this year thanks to the wonderful community and our MarketClub members.

While we had hoped to host our annual holiday party for our team and their families, our staff agreed that people in our community needed our help.

In place of our holiday party, happily provided meals to food-insecure families through donations to the South County Area Network, MAC House in Moorefield, Wardensville Food Pantry, and the Lost River Ministerial Food Pantry.

President of, David Maher, personally presented the Mac House with our donation. The coordinator of the Moorefield food efforts said, "Wow, that’s wonderful! Thank you! Thank you! This community is blessed by its giving and caring people. Very generous of you especially in this difficult time."

  7. I would like to donate the funds to St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio.

    I am a big proponent of quality education for our young men. St. Ignatius offers a high quality college preparatory education for high school boys of all backgrounds and ethnicities in the Greater Cleveland area.

    Its graduates truly emerge as Men For Others.
