Whether it's a great way to end 2020 or a great start to 2021, this is something that will always bring a smile to my face.

Palmer Feed went above and beyond raising $3600 for 2 organizations that are doing a lot for those in need.

Read the press release below:

The spirit of this past Christmas continues into the new year for the West Texas Boys Ranch and Sonrisas Therapuetic Riding thanks to Palmer Feed’s annual “Sack It--Don’t Wrap It” campaign.

Representatives from the West Texas Boys Ranch and Sonrisas Therapeutic Riding were hosted Wednesday at Palmer Feed to be presented checks for $1,800.00 each.

Sewing presents up in a feed bag rather than wrapping them is a tradition in the Palmer family that dates back three decades. Now each year the public is invited to join in the fun and bring their gifts to be “sacked” for a donation of $3. Palmer then matches the money and donates to local charities.

In 2020 Palmer sacked 200 more gifts than the Christmas before.

Palmer Feed general manager Bridget Scott says, “We love helping these two organizations. Sonrisas and the Boys Ranch are related to the agricultural and equine industries that Palmer Feed serves. But more importantly, they help young people and reflect the generosity and the commitment to others that San Angelo is known for."

Local charity is another Palmer Feed tradition. In addition to numerous types of goods donations and hosting of fundraising events, Palmer has donated well over $30,000 in cash donations in recent years.

We can all follow in their footsteps.

Thank you to Palmer Feed Supply for your consistent support of local organizations.
