Wegmans teams up with United Way of the Southern Tier for checkout fundraiser

March 15, 2024:

United Way of the Southern Tier and Wegmans have teamed up again to make giving easy.

Wegmans shoppers in Corning, Elmira, and Hornell can donate to United Way at the checkout lane. Shoppers can choose to donate $2, $3, or $5, or round up their purchase to the nearest dollar.

"Every dollar will support a local program for a child, a senior citizen, or those in need in our community,” said United Way President and CEO Stephen Hughes. “Even the smallest gift can have a huge impact on people’s lives.”

All donations will be directed to United Way of the Southern Tier’s Game Changer Fund. The fund supports 68 programs in Chemung and Steuben counties including Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, home-delivered meals for senior citizens, and crisis services such as domestic violence shelters. A complete list of funded local programs is here.

This giving opportunity at the Wegmans checkout ends April 24.
