29 Massachusetts and New Hampshire Stores Joining Local Hunger Causes, Highlighting New “Three for Free”Campaign
Area Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shop owners today announced a holiday season effort to collect a minimum of 3,000 canned and nonperishable food items for local food pantries where their stores are located. Customers who bring in a canned good during the week of Dec. 2 will get three free ounces of frozen yogurt with every eight ounce purchase.
But donating canned goods for a good cause isn’t the only thing that will earn customers free yogurt. Orange Leaf’s new “Three for Free” campaign, running Nov. 13 through Dec. 22, also rewards customers that play along with a new, weekly offbeat challenge. For example, if a customer can say “three for free” three times fast at their local Massachusetts or New Hampshire Orange Leaf from Nov. 13 until Nov.17, they will also get three ounces for free.
“At Orange Leaf, we want to promote fun while helping our community. The ‘Three for Free’ campaign will do just that by combining silly challenges for free yogurt with our more serious canned food drive,” said Mike Hennessy, president of the Orange Leaf Co-Op of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. “And the best part is that the canned and dry goods will be donated to a food pantry that serves that community.”
Each participating Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shop has identified a nearby food bank where they will deliver their donated items. A full list of participating shops and food pantries is below.
Customers can find out what the promotion is each week by checking on the 3 for Free Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/3forfreeorangeleaf), and following #3forFree on all social media outlets.
