    The Pamida Foundation has donated more than $125,500 to local schools in Pamida communities.

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.
