BJ's Wholesale Club of Conyers took part recently in the Tell Hunger to Hit the Road campaign, a company-wide initiative to help end hunger.

Conyers BJ's General Manager Tracy Verriest and Member Services Manager Sherry Wise volunteered in the local efforts of the food drive.

Tell Hunger to Hit the Road campaign is a partnership of BJ's Wholesale Club and the nonprofit organization Feeding America. More than 190 BJ's Wholesale Clubs nationwide will donate 10 million pounds of unsold produce, meat and fish to 44 food banks in the company's 15-state footprint. BJ's is also committing $150,000 to Feeding America for transport of the food and will donate an additional $1 for every person who "likes" or "shares" BJ's on Facebook through Dec. 31.
