Schenectady, NY, 2016-Sep-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — Price Chopper and Market 32 customers and teammates from throughout the company’s six state footprint helped raise $23,679 during the month-long fundraising campaign for United Way, a national organization with local offices that identify and work to make measurable changes in communities in the areas of education, income, and health. This effort supplements the chain’s annual internal, company-supported campaign to raise funds for the United Way.
“United Way helps communities meet basic needs through programs and services that bolster everything from financial literacy and health care to education and job skill development, and by connecting volunteers with worthwhile causes,” said Mona Golub, vice president of public relations and consumer services. “The proceeds from this campaign will stay in the local communities where they were raised to support the great work that United Way continues to do for our neighbors.”
Local United Ways work with partners to identify community strengths and needs, coordinate community wide volunteer efforts, provide support for service programs and community efforts, and advocate for changes to public policy. Common themes are helping children and youth, strengthening and supporting families, improving access to health care, promoting financial stability.
