Select Harris Teeter stores host Health Partner Round Up Campaign

Company accepting monetary donations to support leading health non-profit organizations

Matthews, N.C. – Harris Teeter announced today the launch of its Health Partner Round Up Campaign to benefit leading health non-profit organizations, including American Cancer Society (ACS), American Heart Association (AHA), JDRF and Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Now through April 6, 2021, shoppers can round up their transaction to the nearest whole dollar at select Harris Teeter stores, excluding Hampton Roads and Outer Banks locations, to benefit ACS, AHA, JDRF and MDA. The funds collected throughout the campaign will be evenly distributed among the four health charity partners; 100 percent of the funds will benefit the local community in which the donation was made.

“As many non-profit organizations continue to experience a decrease in funding due to the impact of COVID-19, the generosity of our valued associates and loyal shoppers is critical for these organizations to continue conducting research and providing life-saving treatments and programs, “said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “Through this unique partnership we can increase awareness of each non-profit organization’s role in improving lives and building healthier communities.”

The campaign provides shoppers the opportunity to give back to the local community while making an impact in the advancement of critical research programs and life-changing technology and treatments. The services and resources provided by ACS, AHA, JDRF and MDA are critical to improving the lives of those impacted by cancer, heart disease, type 1 diabetes and neuromuscular diseases.

The regional grocery chain employs approximately 35,000 associates and operates stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, Florida and the District of Columbia.
