A member of the veterans group that gathers every week at Malicki’s Piggly Wiggly is also the winner of the store’s Fill the Fridge contest that includes a $100 gift card.

Rob Lasch, in addition to serving in the military, is also a former police officer who now has multiple sclerosis. He joins other veterans on Thursdays to enjoy fellowship at Piggly Wiggly, 5201 Washington Avenue, and was nominated to receive the groceries by members of the group, according to a story on WISN 12 News.

Store owner Ralph Malicki said it’s an honor to provide the fellowship day and he’s happy that one of the group is the winner of the giveaway.

“It’s an honor to be able to do this, it truly is,” he is quoted as saying. “It’s important to give back to people who have given so much to us.”
