Featured Rounding Up Recipients

Rounding Up at the Register is a program that gives you the opportunity to give back to your local community every time you shop. Youโ€™ll have the option to round up to the nearest dollar when you check out, and the difference will be donated to a local non-profit. (You can opt to donate more*, if you wish!). Every month weโ€™ll donate to a different non-profit at each of our seven locations. Plus, we are matching your donations. Meet our June recipients, below.

KIMBERTON: Barnstone Art For Kids

Barnstone Art for Kids is a non-profit organization located in Phoenixville that uses the power of art to foster resiliency in children facing adversity. Children benefit from sustained one-on-one interactions with a motivated mentor, while mentors are rewarded with a sense of fulfillment and a chance to make a difference. Founded in 2011, this organization began in a retail art gallery as a means to help grieving children express their feelings about loss. Soon it became clear that the sheer brilliance of art was in its power to encourage individuals to heal, cope and grow. Today, they offer a variety of programs for youth of all ages including a summer studio workshop.ย
