Jiffy Mart and Koch teamed up in an event earlier this month to help raise both funds and awareness for Carroll County Food Sunday.

Carroll County Food Sunday helps more than 600 families in need in Carroll County a year. The organization's services include providing milk vouchers for families, and according to a news release, more than 60 percent of these vouchers are redeemed at Jiffy Mart locations.
According to a news release, people started lining up at 4 p.m. for the July 9 event and more than 200 people attended.
“The cost of a gallon of milk is around $4, Sam’s number is No. 4, so we decided anyone coming in on that evening and sponsoring a milk voucher could then have an item signed by Sam”, said Tom Moser, Jiffy Mart general manager.
In addition to meeting Koch, attendees were also greeted by the Ravens mascot Poe as well as Captain Dee Fense and the Baltimore Birdman.
The Jiffy Mart Team presented $1,100 to Carroll County Food Sunday to help fund 275 milk vouchers, according to a news release.
Jiffy Mart is also planning to participate in the First Annual Baltimore Summer Football Festival being held on Saturday, Aug. 18 at the Ag Center in Westminster.
Tickets for this event will be sold at each Jiffy Mart location. A portion of the ticket sales and Jiffy Mart items sold during the event will benefit Carroll County Food Sunday.
Jiffy Mart currently operates four stores in Carroll County, two locations are in Westminster, one in Finksburg and one in Hampstead.
