ACME TRACTOR-TRAILERS LEAVE SOUTH PHILADELPHIA LOADED WITH FOOD AND SUPPLIES FOR STORM-RAVAGED SOUTH FLORIDA

 ACME TRACTOR-TRAILERS LEAVE SOUTH PHILADELPHIA LOADED
 WITH FOOD AND SUPPLIES FOR STORM-RAVAGED SOUTH FLORIDA
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Three Acme tractor-trailers loaded with food and supplies and their three volunteer drivers left the company's Distribution Center in South Philadelphia at 11 a.m. headed for storm-ravaged South Florida to deliver much needed provisions to thousands of victims of Hurricane Andrew.
 This humanitarian effort, whose combined partnership includes the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Teamsters Local 500, Acme Markets, Inc. and its vendors, is a highly organized and mobile program designed to guarantee delivery of the food and supplies to those who need them, quickly and efficiently.
 Acme's Hurricane Relief Effort is being expedited to the stricken area through special arrangements with the Department of Transportation and International Brotherhood of Teamsters in Washington and in cooperation with the American Red Cross.
 The food and supplies, which were determined as most necessary by the American Red Cross, are scheduled to arrive on Saturday at the Teamsters' Warehouse in Miami. The trucks will be unloaded and the food/supplies packed in Acme shopping bags for immediate delivery to an already, pre-determined list of households.
 According to Acme spokesperson Judy Spires, "No one understands the food distribution business better than supermarkets. We do it every day and know what it requires in terms of supply, coordination and manpower to deliver the right products to the people who need them most."
 Acme Markets, Inc. said it is grateful to its many employees, vendors and the union who worked so diligently to help the unfortunate victims of this storm.
