Schnucks Customers, Company Donate $250,000 to the United Way for COVID-19 Relief

ST. LOUIS, April 24, 2020Schnuck Markets, Inc. and the United Way today announced that Schnucks customers and the company are donating $250,000 to the nonprofit through the company’s “Round Up at the Register” campaign. Of the funds raised, customers donated $225,400 from April 3 through April 20, by rounding up the cost of their Schnucks purchases to the nearest dollar. Schnucks is donating an additional $24,600 to the nonprofit. 100 percent of the donations will go directly to the United Way in each store’s local area, as the nonprofit works to support those experiencing hardships as a result of COVID-19. Schnucks’ donation is in addition to the $605,000 the company donated last month to support COVID-19 relief in the five states in which Schnucks operates. 

“We are incredibly grateful for our customers’ generosity,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “Just like our company and our teammates are dedicated to nourishing people’s lives, our customers have shown that in these uncertain times, their commitment to helping their neighbors and communities is unwavering.”

“We are so grateful to Schnucks and their customers for this incredible outpouring of support and generosity to our community,” said United Way President and CEO Michelle Tucker. “With this support, we can help individuals and families impacted by this crisis with their immediate and long-term needs. Although we are all apart right now, this is a wonderful example of the community coming together to care for each other.” 

Tucker adds that Schnucks customers’ Round Up donations will support those who are currently in need of food, health care, employment support and emergency utility, rent and mortgage assistance. Those who are experiencing hardships due to COVID-19 are encouraged to dial 2-1-1, the United Way’s free and confidential service that helps people across North America find the local resources they need 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
