This Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 3-5, MK and EFM Outfitters are teaming up to rally food donations for the victims of the recent tornado devastation in northern Alabama. Folks who donate three (3) non-perishable food items to EFM Outfitters, located in the Parkway Place Mall in Huntsville, Alabama, will receive 15% off any one (1) MK or other-brand item in the store.
Acceptable food-drive items include: canned meat or fish, canned vegetables, peanut butter, soups, chili, stew, paper products (towels or tissue), dinner kits (Hamburger Helper®), rice, noodles, breakfast cereal, canned fruits.
The mission to help hits close to home for MK and EFM Outfitters. According to Freeda Casteel, EFM Outfitters’ Store Manager, “The devastation that has taken place in North Alabama is something that will be felt for years to come. We have actually had small communities literally wiped from the map. Not only were there families who have lost everything, there were entire families that were lost. North Alabama has always rallied around its own when necessary and I feel this is no exception. We will overcome this and rebuild stronger. I can tell you on the news last night, there were stories of people in North Alabama getting donations to send to Joplin, Missouri to help out victims there. We do what we can when needed.”
Ms Casteel’s sentiments are echoed by MK Dealer Services Specialist, Shelley Thornton, “When tragedies such as these devastating tornadoes occur, people are compelled to do whatever they can to help. Our team at Mountain Khakis is staying in close touch and brainstorming with our dealers in the region on ways we can aid the victims and help rebuild their communities. Through my role at MK, I have come to hold Alabama so dear to my heart. And I know that if the situations were reversed, the people of Alabama would be the first to help out. That’s just how they are.”
To participate in the Mountain Khakis & EFM Outfitters Food Drive, bring your three (3) cans of non-perishables to EFM Outfitters located in the Parkway Place Mall in Huntsville, Alabama.
