For the last 4 years we've supported a charity each month and it's almost always a local organization right here in our community. But as we watch the events of Tropical Storm Harvey unfold in the Gulf Coast, we want to turn our support to the American Red Cross. Their relief efforts have been extraordinary and will continue for a long time no doubt taking a toll on their resources.
Every time you round up your purchase during September, we'll match your change donation. Stay tuned at the end of the month and we'll announce the amount of our donation to The American Red Cross.
In the meantime, please consider donating to a local blood drive. You can find dates and locations by clicking here. Or consider becoming a volunteer by clicking here.
