Giant-Landover donates $25,000 to Toys for Tots

LANDOVER, Md. — Supermarket chain Giant Food of Landover, Md., donated $25,000 to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to support children in need across the Mid-Atlantic region this week, the Ahold-owned chain said.

Giant, also known as Giant-Landover to distinguish it from Giant Food Stores of Carlisle, Pa. — also owned by Ahold — said it would collect toys at all of its 170 stores during the holiday season.

Giant-Landover operates stores in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia.

The announcement, made Tuesday, follows the chain's Nov. 20 donation of 1,000 turkeys to local food banks ahead of Thanksgiving.
