Harris Teeter launches campaign to support United Way and The Salvation Army
Shoppers invited to round up transaction to nearest whole dollar
Now through November 2, Harris Teeter shoppers are invited to round up their transactions to the nearest whole dollar at checkout; 100 percent of funds raised will be distributed evenly between the United Way of Chatham County and Salvation Army Chatham County Service Unit.
“Harris Teeter is proud to continue its support of United Way and The Salvation Army,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “COVID-19 continues to impact many programs which fund critical programs for nonprofits like The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle program. By offering a convenient way for our valued associates and loyal shoppers to give back, we can help ensure our communities continue to have access to the critical resources they need.”
Focusing on education, health, financial stability and basic needs, United Way works to create an environment of opportunity where thousands of families in our communities can have a chance for a better life.
“We are very grateful for the support that United Way receives from Harris Teeter,” said United Way of Chatham County Executive Director, Katie Childs. “The United Way serves one in three people in Chatham, and Harris Teeter employees and customers are strengthening our community by simply rounding up their check-out totals. When you round up, you are helping United Way give basic needs like housing, utility assistance, health care, childcare and many other services to those in need, and those who continue to struggle during the pandemic.”
The Salvation Army assists individuals and families-in-need by providing food for the hungry, emergency relief for disaster survivors, rehabilitation services and clothing and shelter for those facing homelessness.
