Raising Money for United Way $1 at a Time

Stop-by Your Neighborhood Harris Teeter to Purchase a Harry the Happy Dragon Donation Card for United Way

Charlotte, N.C. - Harris Teeter launched a fundraising campaign on behalf of United Way on Aug. 15, 2011, and its customers have been quick to respond, raising over $84,000 since the start of the Harry the Happy Dragon Donation Card Campaign. 

Harris Teeter has been raising money for United Way for decades and it is only with the support of its loyal associates and customers that the company has been able to host successful fundraising programs for the nonprofit organization.  When shoppers purchase a $1 or $5 Harry the Happy Dragon Donation Card, they are helping fund United Way’s valuable programs that focus on the building blocks for a good life: helping children and youth achieve their potential, promoting financial stability and independence, and improving people’s health.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing root causes of problems in communities, and it is Harris Teeter’s goal to support those communities in which its associates and shoppers live and work.  The Harry the Happy Dragon Donation Card Campaign is just one way Harris Teeter can be a part of the change, working together with United Way to create a brighter future.

The Harry the Happy Dragon Donation Card Campaign ends on Sept. 16, 2011.  The company thanks its shoppers for helping it raise money for United Way; all funds will be donated back to the United Way chapter in the community in which they were raised.
