The Salvation Army Fundraisers Return to Schnucks for the Holidays
Round Up at the Register to be Followed by Return of Bell Ringers and Iconic Red Kettles

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 12, 2020 – Schnuck Markets, Inc. will continue its decades-long holiday tradition of partnering with The Salvation Army for the annual Tree of Lights campaign. Beginning Saturday, Nov. 14 and continuing through Wednesday, Nov. 25, Schnucks customers can donate to the campaign by choosing to “Round Up” their purchase at Schnucks to the nearest dollar. One-hundred percent of round up donations support The Salvation Army in the customer’s community.

Schnucks will offer the campaign at 111 of the company’s stores across the four Midwest states where it operates. In 2019, Schnucks customers and the company donated more than $320,000 to the Salvation Army through the “Round Up at the Register” campaign. 

At the conclusion of the round up, Schnucks will again welcome The Salvation Army’s bell ringers and their iconic red kettles to all Schnucks stores. Starting Friday, Nov. 27 and continuing through Christmas Eve, volunteer bell ringers will be outside of Schnucks stores starting 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. each day Monday through Saturday.

“Joining with The Salvation Army for the round up campaign and welcoming bell ringers at our entrances are part of our commitment to nourish people’s lives,” said Schnucks Chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “We know the need in our communities is great, and because of the support from our generous customers, many people will be able to count on The Salvation Army for the help they need.”

The Salvation Army uses funds raised during the Tree of Lights campaign to provide assistance to the most vulnerable citizens, as the organization helps provide food, utility payments and emergency rent and mortgage payments throughout the year.

“The Salvation Army values our partnership with Schnucks  and the company’s continued support of our fundraising goals,” said Salvation Army Divisional Commander Lt. Colonel Robert Webster. “Their commitment to the communities we serve is exemplary, and we are grateful for the generosity of Schnucks customers who also recognize the need is great.”
