If you shop at The Strathmore Sobeys they might ask you if you wish to round up your purchase. It is a new charitable initiative created by the grocery chain.
The staff that is wearing a green community shirt have agreed to donate two dollars per paycheque to local community groups through the United Way of Calgary and Area in Strathmore.
Donations can range from one to one hundred dollars, but the more common donation is to round up your purchase to the nearest dollar.
There are a number of local organizations including Hope Bridges Society, The Strathmore Municipal Library, and the Strathmore Child, Youth and Family Hub that will benefit from the fund,
Any groups that wish to be included in this charitable initiative can register at the Town of Strathmore website.
