Schnucks is continuing its long-standing support of the United Way. Through Oct. 4, Schnucks customers in the St. Louis metropolitan area will be able to contribute to United Way of Greater St. Louis at the checkout simply by rounding up their grocery purchases to the nearest dollar. Those customers who use self-checkouts and wish to donate may choose a $1, $3 or a $5 Scan and Give option.
Schnucks Rewards members also have the opportunity to donate their rewards points to United Way as part of the Donate Your Rewards program.
The retailer has a decades-long history of supporting United Way, and during last year’s company campaign, teammates and the company donated more than $2.45 million.

“Over the decades, our teammates, leaders and company as a whole have formed an amazing and impactful community partnership with United Way of Greater St. Louis as well as United Way chapters in the many areas we serve,” said company chairman and CEO Todd Schnuck. “Just as United Way is committed to helping those who need it most, Schnucks is dedicated to nourishing people’s lives in the communities that we serve.”
One hundred percent of roundups will benefit United Way of Greater St. Louis and will contribute to the organization’s mission to mobilize the caring power of communities to help people live their best possible lives, according to the nonprofit. In 2022, the chapter is celebrating 100 years of impact, helping 1-in-3 people create a stronger, healthier and more equitable region for all, the company said.
