The Pamida Foundation has donated more than $125,500 to local schools in Pamida communities.
The donation was raised, in part, through the generosity of customers during in-store fundraisers at all Pamida locations last month. The program offered customers the opportunity to donate $1 or round up their purchase at store registers. The Foundation then matched up to $250 of store proceeds in each Pamida community. In addition, this donation includes a contribution from The Pamida Foundation of 5 percent of sales at Pamida stores on Aug. 21.
“As a community partner, the Pamida Foundation is committed to supporting education and helping schools continue their standard of excellence. We are pleased that once again, Pamida can help support the well-being of our communities. We are truly grateful for our customers’ dedication to education and the future of our youth,” said Jessica Strohman, executive director of the Pamida Foundation.
Schools that wish to be considered for future donations are welcome to submit requests to the Pamida Foundation. Details may be found in brochures at all Pamida stores and pharmacies or www.pamida.com.
