Change for change: That’s the idea behind Goodwill Central Coast’s Round-Up Program, a way for shoppers already saving money to round-up purchases to the nearest dollar and donate that amount to charity.
Salinas, CA, February 01, 2021 - Change for change: That’s the idea behind Goodwill Central Coast’s Round-Up Program, a way for shoppers already saving money to round-up purchases to the nearest dollar and donate that amount to charity.
On Feb. 10, Goodwill shoppers can shop as usual while benefiting Max’s Helping Paw’s Foundation, a local nonprofit that believes financial circumstances should never decide a companion pet’s fate.
This special Round-Up day will take place at all Goodwill locations on the Central Coast. Shoppers can round-up to the nearest dollar. All of these options are displayed on the credit card terminal machine. All proceeds go directly to the foundation, whose work helps reduces economic euthanasia, surrender and suffering of severely ill or injured pets by providing pet owners assistance with the costs of urgent medical care.
It’s a double feel-good day for shoppers, whose purchases help Goodwill train unemployed or underemployed people for career opportunities.
