TRUSSVILLE — The Milo’s Alabama Strong campaign is giving back to families during the coronavirus outbreak.
Each of the chain’s 20 stores in Alabama will provide meals to kids in need. Stores in Greater Birmingham, Prattville, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, Jasper, Cullman and Decatur will provide 150 meals. For a limited time, the chain will also give customers the opportunity to purchase Milo’s sauce. For each bottle sold, two dollars will be donated to feed a child in need.
Milo’s CEO Tom Dekle said the chain wants to focus on being a strong partner and trusted advocate in Alabama communities.
“With many parents juggling family and work priorities at home, the last thing they should have to worry about is finding time to feed their family during this difficult period,” Dekle said. “While times are challenging for us as well, it is our duty and honor to give back and take care of our local customers, team members and community partners as we overcome these challenges together.”
Since 1946, Milo’s has served the Birmingham community and frequently partners with a variety of local schools, churches and nonprofit organizations through community outreach initiatives including Student of the Month, Points for Purpose, Milo’s Art and Milo’s Math. Headquartered in Birmingham, Milo’s currently operates in the Birmingham area, Prattville, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, Jasper, Cullman and Decatur.
