“Round Up at the Register” to be followed by the return of bell ringers and iconic red kettles
Schnuck Markets, Inc., is continuing its decades-long partnership with The Salvation Army during the upcoming holiday season. From Wednesday, Nov. 8 through Wednesday, Nov. 22, Schnucks customers can donate to The Salvation Army by choosing to “Round Up” their purchases to the nearest dollar.
Those customers who use self-checkouts may choose a $1, $3, or $5 “Scan and Give” option. Schnucks Rewards members also can donate their Rewards to The Salvation Army, as part of the Donate Your Rewards program. One hundred percent round-up donations will support The Salvation Army in the communities in which they are donated.
In 2022, Schnucks customers and the company donated more than $250,000 to The Salvation Army as part of the Round Up campaign.
“We are honored once again to partner with The Salvation Army at both our checkstands and at our store entrances to help Nourish People’s Lives in the communities that we serve,” said Schnucks Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Todd Schnuck. “Our customers’ generous donations will make the holidays bright this year and the future even brighter as The Salvation Army works to provide food to the hungry, temporary housing to the unhoused and toys to needy children.”
At the conclusion of the Round Up, Schnucks will welcome back The Salvation Army’s bell ringers and their iconic red kettles. Starting Friday, Nov. 24 and continuing through Saturday, Dec. 23, bell ringers will return to all Schnucks stores, Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
“We here at The Salvation Army are excited and equally grateful for the ongoing support of Schnucks and their customers. Together this Christmas season, we will round up and Love Beyond Hunger in communities right here in the St. Louis Region and every area we and Schnucks have neighbors,” said Major Adam Moore, St. Louis Metro Area Commander for The Salvation Army.
