Albertsons Market, one of our best long-term supporters, has come up with yet another way for the public to easily help the Storehouse. Starting next week, Wednesday April 28, you will be able to donate at the checkout stations as you wrap up your grocery shopping at local Albertsons Market stores.
How & When to Donate at Checkout
This new fundraiser will be taking place April 28 through May 10, 2021. The Storehouse will be the beneficiary of the funds collected at all of the local stores in the Storehouse service area. That includes Albertsons Market locations in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, and Los Lunas. You can find the closest store to you by visiting the Albertsons Market website.
It will be really easy to donate at checkout at any of these Albertsons Market sites. When you get ready to pay for your groceries, the cashier will ask if you’d like to make a donation to fight hunger or to help the Storehouse. A graphic may also pop-up on the payment screen if you are paying with a credit or debit card. You can round your purchase up to the next dollar or donate an extra $5 or $10 to your grocery bill (any amount you would like) and it will be added onto your total. When your payment is processed, you will be donating to help others in need.
Adding a dollar or two would be easy for most grocery shoppers, but each penny makes a difference to the Storehouse. With every dollar donated we can provide 5 meals. Together, all the grocery shoppers at these Albertsons Markets stores could make a big difference for our food pantry.
Give while you grocery shop!
We hope that all of our supporters and maybe some potential new donors, too, decide to give at the checkout the next few weeks. The Storehouse would greatly appreciate these funds. In addition, we want to express our appreciation to the team at Albertsons Market for not only giving us food all year long and donations from their corporate accounts, but also finding new ways to engage their customers to help our community. Watch for more information on launch day on our Facebook page. If everything goes as planned we’ll be doing a Facebook live at one of the local Albertsons Market stores to show just how easy it is to give at checkout.
If you aren’t grocery shopping this week or aren’t near an Albertsons Market, you can always donate today on our website. Thank you!
