Harris Teeter believes that by giving back to our communities, we can build incredible neighborhoods for all of us. We see getting involved in our communities - at the local store level and through corporate contributions - as an important part of doing business.
But more importantly, we want vibrant neighborhoods because that's where our associates and customers live!
While we try to help out as many folks as possible, we can't meet everyone's needs. So we've focused our giving into three main areas: eliminating hunger, educating children, and serving specific community needs.
Harris Teeter has partnered with Feeding America agencies as well as local food pantries to make sure the less fortunate in our communities do not go hungry. Through our food donation program that supplies products to charitable agencies and our reclamation program for damaged goods, we give millions of pound of food each year to both agencies of Feeding America and our local food pantry partners.
Through our Together In Education program, Harris Teeter donates thousands of dollars each year to local schools to help them buy needed supplies to educate our children. We also offer scholarship programs for Harris Teeter associates to help them gain a college education.
Serving the Community
We realize that each community in which Harris Teeter stores are located has different needs, so our stores have the flexibility to give back through gift certificates, fundraising support and associate volunteerism. Our associates also take part in a company giving program to help raise funds for United Way. Associate and corporate pledges go to local United Way agencies across all our Harris Teeter neighborhoods.
