(WEEK) – Schnucks has announced today that through customer and company donations, they have donated a total of $320,000 to The Salvation Army’s annual through Schnucks’ “Round Up at the Register.”
The nearly two-week campaign gave customers the option to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar, with 100 percent of donations going to The Salvation Army – including a contribution from the company.
The total for this season surpassed last year’s $236,000 donated by customers, according to a release.
“At Schnucks, we know how important this campaign is in supporting The Salvation Army not only throughout the holidays but all year long,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “We thank our generous customers for their donations and for supporting the difference-making work The Salvation Army continues to do throughout our communities.”
`All the monies raised during the “Round Up at the Register” campaign stays in the market in which they were donated, going to support local programs and services – including helping to provide food, shelter, child care and job training throughout the year.
