Highland, Indiana-based Strack & Van Til has donated $574,110 through its Checkout Challenge Round Up to various charities and organizations in the communities it serves throughout Northwest Indiana.
Customers across the region could choose to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar when shopping. The extra funds are donated to the designated charity or organization for that campaign.
Some beneficiaries of the Checkout Challenge Round Up in 2022 included the American Heart Association, Special Olympics Indiana, Habitat for Humanity, Cancer Resource Center, Meals on Wheels, Tradewinds, Opportunity Enterprises, Boys & Girls Clubs of Northwest Indiana, Salvation Army, Visiting Nurses Association Meals on Wheels Program, Pink Ribbon Society, United Way of Northwest Indiana, Boy Scouts of America and the Foodbank of Northwest Indiana.
Jeff Strack, president and CEO, credits the success of the Checkout Challenge Round Ups to customer generosity and the commitment of Strack & Van Til employees.
“We have the best customers. They are the ones who give back to the community. Our stores, with the help of our employees, simply provide our customers an outlet to give to some of their favorite local organizations,” Strack said.
“Giving back to the communities we serve is just naturally a part of Strack & Van Til’s culture. We are very grateful to our customers who contribute to these Round Up campaigns and make a difference in the lives of so many people.”
Strack & Van Til is a full-service grocery and fresh food store. It partners with local organizations and charities to make a positive difference in the community.
