Shoppers invited to round up transaction to nearest whole dollar
Harris Teeter announced yesterday the launch of its United Way and Salvation Army Round Up Campaign. Now through November 17, Harris Teeter shoppers are invited to round up their transaction to the nearest whole dollar at checkout; 100 percent of funds raised at the Chatham County Harris Teeter will be distributed evenly among the United Way of Chatham County and Salvation Army Chatham County Service Unit.
“Harris Teeter hosts its United Way Round Up campaign annually, and this year, we are proud to provide shoppers the opportunity to also support The Salvation Army,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “Due COVID-19, many programs which fund critical programs for nonprofits – like Salvation Army’s Red Kettle program – have been impacted resulting in a significant decrease in funds. With the generous donations from our valued associates and loyal shoppers, we can ensure these organizations are able to continue providing essential resources and programs to our communities in 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 thankful for the support that United Way receives from Harris Teeter. With every dollar raised, they are engaging employees and customers in our important work to make sure the people who need help the most receive it during this unprecedented time,” said Katie Childs, Interim Executive Director for the United Way of Chatham County.
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.
All funds collected through this campaign at the Chatham Downs Harris Teeter will remain local, benefitting the United Way of Chatham County and Salvation Army Chatham County Service Unit.
