Matthews, N.C. – Harris Teeter announced today the launch of its United Way and Salvation Army Round Up Campaign. Now through Nov. 1, Harris Teeter shoppers are invited to round up their transaction to the nearest whole dollar at checkout; 100 percent of funds raised will be distributed evenly among local United Way chapters and Salvation Army commands throughout Harris Teeter’s marketing areas.
“Harris Teeter is proud to continue its support of United Way and The Salvation Army,” said Danna Robinson, corporate affairs manager for Harris Teeter. “ 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.
“United Way is deeply rooted in the community and works to address our economic mobility challenges. We are grateful for the continued support and partnership with Harris Teeter,” said Clint Hill, chief development officer for United Way of Central Carolinas. “The generosity of Harris Teeter employees and customers helps break the cycle of poverty for thousands of families and individuals.”
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.
“We are grateful for our ongoing partnership with Harris Teeter and for the support of community members who stand beside their neighbors in need. Working together, we can weave a safety net for families and individuals who are financially vulnerable,” said Lt. Colonel Ronnie Raymer, divisional commander for The Salvation Army of North and South Carolina. “The Salvation Army is seeing an increase in the families and individuals who need help, but the generosity of the community through Harris Teeter’s Round Up campaign will provide hope to people in their darkest hours.”
All funds collected through this campaign will remain local, benefitting the United Way chapter and The Salvation Army command in the community nearest to the Harris Teeter at which the money was donated.
