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 seven locations. Plus, we are matching your donations. Meet our December recipients, below.
