Donor spends $1,000 on groceries for 13 Food for Families

NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WZZM) -- Our 13 Food for Families Food Fight kicked off Monday in Norton Shores, where a last-minute donation surprised everyone.

Twenty minutes before Valerie Lego's Food Fight appearance at the Plumb's store was about to end, Pam Koop and her husband drove from Spring Lake to buy $1,000 worth of items to donate.

Her final receipt stretched almost six feet. She said she wanted to make sure that store won the ice cream party at stake.

But it's people in need who are really winning, because of her generosity.

Tuesday, store employees were still packing up all of her donations.

They filled 70 boxes before running out of boxes and having to pause the packing.

Plumb's employees say they still have three more carts filled with donations, which could bring the tally to more than 100 boxes.

Tyler Grover, Plumbs Director of Operations, said it's "just fantastic, amazing, just to see that kind of response to this."

After we shared our donor's story on Twitter, many more people are sharing their plans to make a grand donation.

But even the smallest donations make a difference.

You can donate at SpartanNash stores and in the WZZM 13 parking lot at 645 3 Mile.
