Pretty sure they get the cash. Wegmans does this as a courtesy, joint effort. I always say sorry I pay enough in taxes.

If wegmans gives it in their name they have to benefit by a tax write off.

How much of Danny's personal money is donated??

I think that's Danny's personal business. I know over the years the Wegmans have donated tons of money.
Years ago they donated 25 million so inner city(key words) kids go to private Catholic schools.
The Wegman family has been very generous over the years.

Then our $700,000 is our personal business and Danny shouldn't be bragging about it as if it was him. And Years ago "they" didn't do no of the sort, it was Danny father that the "private catholic schools that happen to be located in the city. It wasn't Danny, and it help school of rich white kids, not schools that poor black city kids went to.

If they are soo generous then you can't tell us it none of our business and we just gotta believe it. And how come you didn't mention if Danny got a tax write off for donating our $700,000???

We don't even know if they give the cash or the food, maybe outdated going bad food that they may donated at full retail instead of cost??

We've been very charitable to Danny and Wegmans over the years too.
Just go look at all the records at COMIDA.

You wanna talk about Danny donating "our money" to the inner-city needy, yet you don't want to acknowledge us donating "our money" to the needy Danny Wegman's through COMIDA.??
