Barriere AG Foods presents over $3500 to 2021 grad class

Barriere AG Foods are saying “thank you” to all of their customers who purchased the store’s annual Harvest Supersaver coupon books this fall to support the Barriere Secondary Graduating Class of 2021. The fundraiser required a submission of applications from area non-profits, of which one was selected.

When the the graduating class were notified they had been selected, it also meant that members of the grad class were required to be onsite in the Barriere AG Foods lobby throughout the month of October selling the $10 coupon books which provided $50 worth of savings to each purchaser. One hundred percent of the income from the sales, totaling $3,521, was then donated back to the 2021 graduating class to help fund their grad celebrations in 2012.
