In 2014, our stores made over $800,000 worth of in-kind donations to support local community organizations.

Because we encourage our stores to partner with local organizations, all donations are coordinated by our stores. Requests for donations such as gift cards and gift baskets for fundraisers and auctions, food for community events and meetings, bottled water and fruit for walks and runs, as well participation in community events should be directed to the store managers.
