Rounding Up at the Register is a program that gives you the opportunity to give back to your local community every time you shop. You’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 we’ll donate to a different non-profit at each of our six locations. Plus, we are matching your donations. Meet our November recipients, below.
Collegeville: Daily Bread Community Food Pantry
Daily Bread Community Food Pantry strives to eliminate hunger in the Perkiomen area by providing residents with programs that provide food, promote the value of nutrition, increase self-sufficiency, and instill hope. This has been especially challenging recently due to COVID-19 and flooding that their clients have experienced.
Douglassville: Exeter Area Food Pantry
The Exeter Area Food Pantry was founded in 2011 by a group of community members and local churches concerned about the hunger problem in the Exeter area. They distribute food monthly to residents of the 19606 and 19508 zip codes.
Downingtown: Baby Food Fund
Baby Food Fund is the dream-come-true of its young founder, Mary Hyson. At 6 years old, Mary was sad that there were people who couldn’t get enough food to eat. She made a donation box for her neighborhood and collected BFF’s first $30. Soon, BFF was incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit. To date, BFF has provided over 2 tons of food for Chester County babies in need.
Kimberton: St. Peter’s Pantry
St. Peter’s Pantry is a ministry that provides fresh and nutritious food at no cost to those who experience food insecurity in Chester County. Their pantry is open every other Saturday, and offers non-perishables, and fresh products. Prior to the pandemic, they served 4,500 people a year.
Malvern: Food Pantry at Church of the Good Samaritan
The Food Pantry at Church of the Good Samaritan in Paoli, Chester County is a volunteer organization that provides food assistance and a few additional items to anyone experiencing food insecurity within the community. They have seen around 350 families served within the last year and have managed to adapt to continue serving throughout the pandemic.
Ottsville: Monocacy Farm Project
