2014 Campaign: Over $1.1 Million Donated Thanks to Generous Shoppers, Associates
MATTHEWS, NC, 2015-5-1 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tomorrow, May 1, Harris Teeter will launch its fourth annual Support Our Troops donation card campaign. Support Our Troops benefits both the USO and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), two organizations committed to supporting U.S. troops and their families.
During the month of May, Harris Teeter shoppers and associates will be able to make $1, $3 or $5 donations to Support Our Troops at checkout. The company gives 100 percent of these donations directly to the USO and WWP. In 2014, the campaign raised over $1.1 million total for the two beneficiaries.
For nearly 75 years, the USO has supported America’s troops and their families throughout their journey in the military, from the moment they enlist, throughout their deployments and as they transition back to civilian life. The USO delivers valuable programs, morale-boosting services and engaging entertainment that help them feel appreciated for their service..
“The USO is grateful for partners like Harris Teeter, who help us give back to troops and their families,” said Christy Hartsell USO vice president of Corporate Alliances. “Since May is Military Appreciation Month, it is the perfect time to show our nation’s military that we are thankful for their service, strength and sacrifice.”
WWP is committed to honoring and empowering Wounded Warriors for a lifetime. By continuously being innovative and understanding the needs of warriors, their caregivers and families, WWP works toward its vision to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of injured service members in our nation’s history.
“Harris Teeter is proud to support both the USO and WWP during our May campaign,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “We are thankful for both the involvement of our valued associates and loyal shoppers, as well as the good works of both non-profit partners.”
