On Saturday, cashiers at Wegmans will begin asking customers checking out their purchases to make a donation to the 2012 United Way Campaign.
"I would encourage everyone who shops at Wegmans over the next several weeks to consider adding a dollar to their grocery bill for the United Way," said Vince Horrigan, campaign chairman. "We know that many people donate through another source as well, but this is just such an easy way to give a little extra."
Last year's scanning campaign effort raised $13,741 for the United Way of Southern Chautauqua County and helped support 44 programs at 19 partner agencies. This year's scanning campaign runs from Saturday through Sunday, Oct. 7.
"As a Pacesetter, we've already run our employee campaign for United Way and we're pleased to give our customers the opportunity to contribute as well," said Liz Lingenfelter, Wegmans store manager. "It's important that the community understands that every dollar that's donated at our store comes right back to our local United Way."
The United Way of Southern Chautauqua County's campaign goal is $1,310,000.
