TIME TO ROUND UP AT THE REGISTER AT SCHNUCKS!
The Salvation Army and Schnuck Markets, Inc., are continuing their decades-long tradition of partnering during the holiday season to raise money for a good cause.
From today through Wednesday, Nov. 23, Schnucks customers can donate to The Salvation Army by choosing to “Round Up” their purchases to the nearest dollar. Those customers who use self-checkouts may choose a $1, $3, or $5 “Scan and Give” option. Schnucks Rewards members also can donate their rewards points to The Salvation Army, as part of the Donate Your Rewards program.
Every penny of round-up donations will support The Salvation Army in the communities in which they are donated. The money stays right here in the St. Louis area.
In 2021, Schnucks and its customers donated $266,000 to The Salvation Army as part of the Round Up campaign. At the conclusion of Round Up, Schnucks will welcome The Salvation Army’s bell ringers and their iconic red kettles to all area Schnucks stores.
Starting Friday, Nov. 25, and continuing through Christmas Eve, bell ringers will return to all Schnucks stores, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. through 7 p.m. daily.
“Through our Round Up at the Register campaigns, our generous customers continue to show how just a few cents can quickly add up and make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate in our communities,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “Our company and The Salvation Army have been partners for nearly 40 years, and we’re honored to continue that partnership this holiday season through the Round Up at the Register campaign, and by, once again, hosting bell ringers at all of our stores."
The Salvation Army’s Divisional Commander, Lt. Col. Robert A. Webster, said, “The donations raised through Schnucks round up campaign will make sure families have food on their tables for their holiday meals, assist with utility and rental assistance, and will give Schnucks customers the opportunity to help these families have a brighter holiday.”
This year marks the 75th anniversary of The Tree of Lights campaign. The Tree of Lights is critical to supporting services provided year-round by The Salvation Army. This year's Tree of Lights fundraising goal is $6.2 million in the Greater St. Louis area.
Earlier this year, The Salvation Army of St. Louis recognized Schnucks with the Doing the Most Good Award highlighting the company's commitment to serving the community and for providing support to The Salvation Army.
