ATHENS, Tenn., Aug. 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Family-farmer owned Mayfield Dairy today announced the launch of its first-ever FUEL THEIR DRIVE promotion that will award up to $10,000 to high school athletic departments in Knoxville and Chattanooga, Tenn., Atlanta, Ga. and Birmingham, Ala.
With the pandemic further tightening school athletic budgets across the country, FUEL THEIR DRIVE will give Mayfield shoppers a chance to help local high schools win a portion of $1MM that will be awarded to high school athletic programs nationwide while also supporting their hometown athletes.
Mayfield will award 16 grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to high schools in the communities it serves, including Knoxville, Chattanooga, Atlanta and Birmingham. Dollars can be used to update a sports field, revamp the school gym, purchase much-needed athletic equipment, or whatever the athletic department’s greatest need is. The best part? All shoppers have to do is buy Mayfield milk, available locally at Kroger, Food City, Publix, Walmart and other retailers near you. Community members and high schoolers can also engage in local-market social media challenges for a chance to win additional dollars.
«Community is at the core of who we are and supporting those communities is deep-rooted in our bones,» said Mary Williams, general manager at Mayfield. «Our commitment to communities goes beyond producing wholesome dairy products for families to enjoy. At Mayfield, we believe it is our responsibility to lend a helping hand where we can. We hope this promotion will help fuel success for our area high schools and local athletes.»
FUEL THEIR DRIVE is grounded in the idea that milk can power school athletes like no other beverage – with high quality protein for strong muscles, fluids to rehydrate; and the nutrients athletes need such as calcium, Vitamin D and phosphorus.
