Local ColorTyme teamed with Save-A-Lot to provide food for needy

Lexington ColorTyme helped donate 6,000 pounds of food to local charity

December 21, 2010 // Franchising.com // LEXINGTON, Ky. – The ColorTyme rent-to-own franchise in Lexington and its neighboring grocer, Save-A-Lot, recently joined to spread goodwill for the holidays. Thanks to their partnership, ColorTyme delivered approximately 6,000 pounds of donated food to The Nest, a non-profit center for women, children and families.

Happy to have been a part of the giving effort, Jeremy Rhodus, ColorTyme store manager, said the contribution was the right thing to do.

"No family should ever be without food, especially during the holidays," he said. "With Save-A-Lot's generous donation, we filled an entire box truck with groceries. It's a good feeling to know the food will provide meals for hundreds of families at The Nest and help make it a nice Christmas for them."

The Nest is a social service agency that provides a safe, accessible and healing environment for children, while developing the strength and self-sufficiency of women and families through education, support, counseling and advocacy. Shawn DiLeo, franchisee of the ColorTyme store, said the donation will be an annual tradition.

"This is the start of something big for ColorTyme, Save-A-Lot and members of this community," DiLeo said. "At ColorTyme, helping others is a core part of our business, and we are always willing to support people in times of need. We look forward to donating our time and feeding families though this partnership for many years to come."

The participating ColorTyme and Save-A-Lot stores are located on Winchester Rd. in the Eastland Shopping Center.
