Josey Chandler of Chandler's Supervalu has been working with the local Food Banks (Broken Wings Ministries Inc) to assist with their weekly donations to assist families in need in the communities that they service with their customers. Their Ackerman and Eupora stores are able to donate close dated product each week to Broken Wings Ministries. Josey is also partnering with Broken Wings for their upcoming turkey donations by assisting with store raffles and giveaways.


This has been a new project for the Chandler Organization and they have committed to assisting the Broken Wings Ministry. Broken Wings will be giving away 400 turkeys this year and Josey has committed to doing an in-store raffle with prize giveaways to assist with raising the funds to support the turkeys. This event is planned for October and will be featured in their weekly ads and Facebook promotions.
