Harris Teeter announced the launch of its United Way and Salvation Army Round Up Campaign. Now through Nov. 2, 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, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “COVID-19 continues to impact many programs which fund critical programs for nonprofits like The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle program. 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.
“As communities continue to grapple with the health and economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, we are grateful for the continued support and partnership with Harris Teeter to assist our neighbors in need,” said Clint Hill, chief development officer for United Way of Central Carolinas. “The generosity of Harris Teeter employees and customers helps to create stability for children and families in our community by providing greater access to basic needs like housing/shelter, food, health care, mental health services and more.”
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.
“Helping families overcome financial hardships related to the COVID-19 pandemic requires that we all work together. We are grateful for Harris Teeter and our decades-long partnership serving the community,” said Lt. Colonel Jim Arrowood, divisional commander for The Salvation Army of North and South Carolina. “We have seen a tremendous increase in the numbers of requests from families and individuals hit hard by the COVID pandemic and fighting every day to overcome obstacles to their success. Harris Teeter’s Round Up campaign will help thousands of families in desperate need of hope.”
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.
