November 11 is a day Food Lion is especially honored to celebrate, remember and thank veterans for their service and dedication to our country.
This year, a very special Food Lion veteran, who is known around the Rock Hill community as Mr. Brice, was surprised when he arrived to work and was presented with a cake and gift card in celebration of his service. So surprised in fact, it brought the 91-year-old World War II veteran to tears.
"Food Lion is the only company that's ever cared enough to take care of me," said Brice.
Food Lion associates at store 232, located in Rock Hill, S.C., learned Brice was a veteran when he asked to wear his veteran hat to work that day, but associates wanted to let Brice know he can "Count on Food Lion" to support and thank him for all he has done.
Food Lion also made a $2 million donation to the Wounded Warrior Project during a ceremony they hosted Wednesday morning.
