Fareway Stores, Inc. has partnered with Variety- the Children’s Charity to conduct the third annual Round Up at the Register through Oct. 21. All customers will have the opportunity to round up to the next dollar or to provide an additional donation on their grocery store bill to improve the lives of underprivileged, at-risk and special needs children in Iowa and the surrounding states.
“Fareway has been a proud supporter of Variety-the Children’s Charity for over 30 years,” said Fareway CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We look forward to providing this opportunity for our customers to learn more and give back to children who are at-risk, underprivileged or have special needs in the communities we live and serve.”
The round up event will run for a three-week period during the month of October and proceeds will provide funding to more than 70 charities throughout Iowa and the surrounding states for capital projects, essential medical equipment, special programming and transportation. Variety is a 501(c3) organization, and all donations are tax deductible.
