Weis Markets recently presented a $102,500 donation to the American Heart Association in support of their in-store “Life is Why We Give” program, which raised funds in the fight against heart disease and stroke.

 The donation was generated through customer contributions during a two-week fundraising program during American Heart Month in February, according to a news release. The stores, including two in North Stafford, raised nearly $92,000, and a corporate contribution rounded up the donation to $102,500.

 Customers were encouraged to make small donations at Weis checkouts by rounding up their orders or purchasing vouchers.
