- Customers “round up your change campaign”: Customers can round up their change to the nearest dollar in an effort to raise funds for those in need in Haiti.
- Employee Payroll Deductions: Employees can donate through their paychecks for the months of January/February 2010.
- Nonperishable item donations: Each of Navarro’s 28 store locations are collecting water, clothing, first aid, medical supplies, etc.
- Navarro’s sister company in Miami, Nutri-Force Nutrition, a local manufacturer/marketer of supplements and vitamins, also has donated 10,000 bottles of vitamins and other such nonperishable items as clothes, toiletries, first aid items, baby items, and cases of water.
All monies and goods raised are donated to the American Red Cross.
