As Mr. Meyer used to say, “In all giving, give thoughtfully. Even small amounts can accomplish great tasks.” That’s especially true with those coin donation boxes you see at the end of the Fred Meyer check lanes. The nickels, dimes and quarters you drop in there are a big help to food banks, youth programs, cancer research and troop support in your community. Last year your spare change added up to more than $600,000 in donations.
In 2012, your change combined with the donations from our Associates raised the following amounts:
Local youth development organizations: $240,822
Cancer Awareness and Research organizations: $365,497
USO and Operation Homefront: $355,438
Thank you so much for your generosity, and don’t forget to drop in your change!
