The value of your "Round Up" support

St. Vinny's Thrift Stores

June 05, 2024

When you shop at St. Vinny’s Thrift Stores, you help our neighbors in need! By simply choosing to “Round Up” your total at checkout, you’re contributing to programs that support local families each month.

What is Round Up?

Round Up is a simple concept. When you make a purchase at St. Vinny’s Thrift Stores, you have the option to round up your total to the nearest dollar. For example, if your total is $9.75, you can round up to $10.00, donating the extra 25 cents to support one of our charitable programs.

Each month, Round Up highlights a different service. This means that each month your spare change goes directly to a new cause, allowing you to help our neighbors in need in various ways throughout the year.

You are supporting:

  • St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Program: Customized case management support to families who are headed by single adults and who have recently found permanent housing
  • Little Drummer: Annual toy drive for families who have received help from our home visitors throughout the year
  • Food Pantry: Fresh produce, meat, dairy products, pantry staples, pet food, personal-care items and household cleaning products to neighbors in need
  • Recycle the Warmth Blanket Drive: Annual blanket drive to collect bedding, blankets and sheets to provide to low-income families
  • Air Mattresses: Low-income families receive furniture vouchers to our stores at no cost to them
  • Youth Service Scholarship: Scholarship for local students who may not otherwise be able to afford post-secondary education
  • Lacy Garden: 1.25-acre sustainable garden in Fitchburg that provides produce to our pantry

When you Round Up at St. Vinny’s Thrift Stores, you’re not just making a purchase; you’re making a statement. You’re showing that you care about the well-being of our neighbors and are willing to contribute to building a better community. So next time you shop, consider “Round-ing Up” your total! Your small change will make a big impact.
