Schenectady, NY, 2017-Jul-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — During the month of May, Price Chopper/Market 32 led another successful Round Up Your Change campaign for the American Cancer Society (ACS) and raised $58,644.21. By rounding up total purchases to the next dollar at checkout, customers and teammates were able to increase donations from last year’s campaign by nearly 45%. A $5,000 corporate donation from The Golub Corporation increased the grand total to $63,644.21.
“The Round Up Your Change campaign emphasizes the importance of every donation,” said Mona Golub, vice president of public relations and consumer services. “These many donations of less than a dollar make a change in the lives of those affected by cancer.”
ACS focuses is on conducting research, sharing expert information, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention. The organization raises nearly all of its money through individual donations and is deeply committed to reporting to the millions of people who support the cause each year. The donations given to the American Cancer Society are spent on funding program services and supporting services. For more information, visit www.cancer.org.
