June 6, 2020. Discount Grocery Liquidators and Star Liqui- dators thanked the community for another great season by holding a FREE FOOD Give-away. They joined with H.E.M.P. (Honor, Encour- age, Motivate, Prosper) Legacy Foundation to bring in two truckloads of groceries and product in addition to stock already in the store. H.E.M.P. founder Heidi Hemp and her nephew, BJ, were on hand to help distribute the free food to the Quartzsite community. The H.E.M.P. Legacy Foundation was started to HONOR every person where they are right now, regardless of their past. We ENCOURAGE people to move forward and MOTIVATE them to take the steps needed to be the healthy, energetic, motivated person that they were born to be. By doing this we believe that everyone PROSPERs. Hemp said, "I want to treat everyone with respect, no matter where they are, because we're all the same. And if I can help you today, maybe tomorrow you can help someone else." Glen, Debbie, Wes and staff wish to send their thanks to you all and hope you have a wonderful summer! They will return to the same location in the fall. To learn more about H.E.M.P. visit H.E.M.P. & local business held food give-a-way
