Cash registers were ringing and store aisles were filled, as members of the 220 Quarterback Club took over the new neighborhood Piggy Wiggly for a shopping event March 29.
The Piggly Wiggly store, which is located next to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University (FAMU), replaced the old Harvey’s Supermarket on South Monroe Street in Tallahassee’s South Side community, bringing with it 125 new jobs and an assortment of new food options.
Established seven years ago, The 220 Quarterback Club was created to provide small donations to help diminish a financial deficit in the FAMU Athletics Department. The group began by making donations to the football program and grew into providing assistance to the other athletic teams within the department. Since then the group has made donations outside sports, including a major contribution to the Marching “100.”
