The GIANT Company Celebrates a Century in Business
Cheers to 100 years! The GIANT Company is celebrating its 100th anniversary by growing its legacy of supporting those who matter most – team members, customers, and the communities it serves. To kick off the celebration, The GIANT Company is launching its Make a Difference Challenge, a new initiative focused on supporting communities through nonprofit organizations whose work has a direct impact on promoting healthier people and a healthier planet. Through July 30, non-profit organizations located in the company’s backyard can submit a proposal outlining how their unique program would enhance their community and lives of those they serve. Proposals will undergo a preliminary review by a panel of judges made up of team members. Finalists will be invited to present their project live for a chance to win a $500,000 grant from The GIANT Company. “As we thought about the best way to celebrate our 100th anniversary, it kept coming back to those who’ve helped us get here and to those who help make The GIANT Company the incredibly special place it is, our team members, customers, and community partners. Putting them at the center of our anniversary was the natural choice, because without them, we wouldn’t be marking this incredible milestone in our company history,” said Interim President, John Ruane.Part of Ahold Delhaize USA, the Carlisle, Pennsylvania-based retailer operates 193 grocery stores under the GIANT, MARTIN’s, GIANT Heirloom Market, GIANT Direct, and MARTIN’s Direct banners and proudly serves neighbors across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and New Jersey.
