There was a big meeting Wednesday between the Open Door Mission and CVS. The meeting was prompted by News10NBC's story that showed one CVS store in Greece throwing out dozens of perfectly good winter hats and gloves. The unsold merchandise was tossed into the garbage bin behind the CVS store.
News10NBC learned more about the donation deal between CVS and the Open Door Mission. Each week, volunteers from the mission will visit up to 15 CVS stores to collect unsold food that hasn't reached the expiration date and seasonal items.
The Open Door Mission says it's going to start in a couple of weeks and it is talking with two national chain stores.
