JCPenney & Wegmans shoppers can support United Way of the Southern Tier this fall

Oct. 15, 2021:

United Way of the Southern Tier has teamed up with Wegmans and JCPenney this fall to make giving easier than ever.

Wegmans shoppers in Corning, Elmira and Hornell can donate to United Way of the Southern Tier in the checkout lane by choosing to give donation of $2, $3, $5 or by rounding up their purchase.

JCPenney shoppers at the Arnot Mall store can choose to round-up their purchase to the nearest dollar to support United Way.

"Every dollar has meaning for a child, a senior, or a family in need in our community,” said United Way President and CEO Stephen Hughes. “If you can give a little, you truly can help a lot.”

All donations will be directed to United Way of the Southern Tier’s Game Changer Fund, which goes to programs that serve children, senior citizens, families and individuals in Chemung and Steuben counties.

Wegmans shoppers can give until late November.

The JCPenney round-up promotion at Arnot Mall is ongoing.
