Schnucks Activates “Round Up At The Register” To Support United Way - One Hundred Percent Of Donations Support United Way
ALTON — Starting today and continuing through Tuesday, Oct. 19, Schnucks customers will be able to contribute to their local United Way chapter at checkout simply by rounding up their grocery purchases to the nearest dollar. Those customers who use self-checkouts and wish to donate may choose a $1, $3, or $5 “Scan and Give” option. Schnucks Rewards members also have the opportunity to donate their rewards points to United Way as part of the Donate Your Rewards program.
One hundred percent of donations will benefit the United Way and will help the organization’s mission to mobilize the caring power of communities to help people live their best possible lives. All donations will stay in the region in which they are given and will benefit the local United Way chapter.
Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck is serving as 2021 co-chair of the United Way of Great St. Louis’ annual community campaign. “Many of our neighbors are still facing the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, and we know that recovery will be a long process. The work and impact of the United Way are critical in the recovery process as well as in creating and maintaining strong and healthy communities.” Schnuck said. “At Schnucks, we exist to Nourish People’s Lives, and we share United Way's commitment to helping those who need it most throughout the areas that we serve.”

We are so grateful to Todd for his leadership as our campaign chair and for the entire Schnucks community for their strong support.”
