Don't mean to be a hater here, but this just goes down harshly. I mean...a company making a big show of donating some food and a hundred bucks... You want to be in the news for that? A photo-op? In the words of a great philosopher, "what do you want, a cookie?"

This was a great opportunity to help those in our community that are not as fortunate as most, and this is a terrific organization to support! Great job to everyone.
