Food for Kids with Merrell at Mast Store Knoxville

October 22, 2018 - November 4, 2018

Bullying is part of many conversations today when we talk about kids, but have you ever thought about the biggest bully around? It’s not the kid that’s taller or meaner than the rest; it’s hunger.

Mast Store and Merrell are teaming up with food security partners in all of our communities to take on that bully by providing Food for Kids. From October 22 until November 4, when you purchase a pair of Merrell Footwear at Mast Store, Merrell will make a donation to our local partner to fill backpacks with kid-friendly food for the weekend, a time when kids don’t have access to food or a means of feeding themselves.

At the Mast Store in Knoxville, we are partnering with the Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee. With its help, teachers discretely give food bags to students on Friday in their backpacks so that they can eat over the weekend!

It’s easy to help — just purchase a pair of Merrell shoes, and they’ll make a donation on your behalf. AND you can also contribute to the change jars at the register. Let’s stand up to the hunger bully!
