It is about time that some of the food chains come forward to help in a worthwhile cause. I commend King Kullen and Wild by Nature. You never hear of Pathmark or KMart or Walmart or any of the others doing this and none of the other million dollar businesses kicking in. And Walmart is the worst because they force their underpaid workers to contribute to things and then they take the credit for it. And some others only help if they can get a photo-op and a tax write off for it - that does not count.
