“As they do each holiday season without fail, Schnucks customers once again showed their appreciation towards The Salvation Army through their generous round ups as well as their donations to the red kettles at the entrances of our stores,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “The work The Salvation Army does in our communities, not only during the holiday season but year round, truly aligns with our company’s mission to nourish people’s lives.”

All monies raised during Round Up at the Register stay in the community in which they were donated to support local programs and services, including helping to provide food, shelter, support for veterans, addictions treatment and emergency disaster services throughout the year.

“From here in the heart of St. Louis to communities throughout Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin, Schnucks customers are making a difference,” said Major Adam Moore of The Salvation Army. “Every dollar matters as we invest in our community, meeting needs and creating lasting change. We are grateful to Schnucks, their customers and to the entire community for supporting us during this vital campaign. Together we Do the Most Good.”
