Matthews, N.C., 2015-8-12— /EPR Retail News/ — Today, Harris Teeter launched a donation card campaign to support United Way, an organization creating long lasting change for those most in need through strategic community philanthropy.
Aug. 12, 2015 – Sept. 13, 2015, Harris Teeter customers will be invited to make a $1, $3 or $5 donation to United Way at checkout. Last year, Harris Teeter raised more than $405,000 for local United Way chapters as part of this campaign.
“Harris Teeter has a long-standing relationship with the United Way, and we are proud to lend them our support again this year,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “We are so thankful for the participation of our valued associates and loyal shoppers in helping us to raise funds and awareness for our local communities.”
United Way provides not only basic needs, but also strengthens communities by supporting programs in three areas:
- Education – by offering cradle-to-career strategies that provide a firm foundation at an early age and develop our children into successful adults.
- Income – by empowering people to get on stable financial ground through job training, financial wellness classes and more.
- Health – by expanding access to quality care to enable productive, healthy lives.
All funds collected at checkout will remain local, as donations are given to the United Way chapter in the community nearest to the Harris Teeter at which the money was donated.
