Matthews, North Carolina-based Harris Teeter has launched its Health Partner Round Up Campaign to benefit health nonprofits.
Through April 4, shoppers can round up their transaction to the nearest whole dollar at all stores, excluding the Outer Banks and Hampton Roads locations, to benefit the American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, JDRF and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
North Carolina and South Carolina stores will also benefit former Carolina Panther Greg Olsen’s foundation, the HEARTest Yard, in addition to ACS, AHA, JDRF and MDA.
The funds collected throughout the campaign will be evenly distributed among the health charity partners. All of the funds will benefit the local community in which the donation was made.
“Nonprofits, such as these ones, rely on the generosity of our valued associates and loyal shoppers. These donations are critical for these organizations to continue conducting research and providing life-saving treatments and programs,” said Danna Robinson, director of corporate affairs.
“Through this unique partnership we can increase awareness of each non-profit organization’s role in improving lives and building healthier communities.”
The campaign provides shoppers the opportunity to give back to the local community while making an impact in the advancement of critical research programs and life-changing technology and treatments. The services and resources provided by ACS, AHA, JDRF, MDA and the HEARTest Yard are critical to improving the lives of those impacted by cancer, heart disease, type 1 diabetes, neuromuscular diseases and pediatric cardiovascular disease.
Harris Teeter is a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Kroger Co. The regional grocery chain has about 35,000 employees and operates stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Maryland, Delaware, Florida and the District of Columbia.
