“Each year during the holidays, our customers show their immense generosity towards The Salvation Army at checkout through our Round Up at the Register campaign and by donating to the red kettles at the entrances of our stores,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “We congratulate The Salvation Army on a successful 75th annual Tree of Lights campaign and thank them for the tireless support they bring to those in need. Together, we continue to Nourish People’s Lives in the communities that we have the honor of serving.”
All monies raised during Round Up at the Register stay in the market 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.
