Our Lend-a-Hand register round-up is undoubtedly one of our most popular programs. Since October 2013, our shoppers have rounded up at the register and donated an astounding $32,540 in spare change to support local organizations doing good in our community.
We have 21 applications for our 2017 Lend-a-Hand program. We invite our Owners to select 11 of them for our monthly round-ups. (December is reserved for collecting necessities for the shelter residents at the Interior Alaska Center for Non-Violent Living.)
