‘It was the customers’

Thorne’s Bilo store manager Brandon Parker, left, and cashier Cheryl Green, middle, presented United Fund of Warren Executive Director Michael Hostovich with a check for $1,445 on Tuesday. The money for the donation came from a November and December collection in which Bilo customers could add a donation onto their overall purchase amount. “The cooperation from Bilo is what made it happen,” said Hostovich. “We are looking forward to doing more next year,” added Parker.
