Our Change Matters program provides shoppers an opportunity to help local community-enrichment organizations by making small-change donations, which accumulate into a meaningful contribution for the recipient. The recipient changes monthly, with organizations chosen by a committee of Wedge staff.
Rounding up at the register is an easy way to make donations. During the month of February all register donations will go to support local community organization Simpson Housing Services.
Simpson Housing Services (SHS) began as an emergency overnight shelter in the basement of Simpson United Methodist Church in 1982. SHS has since become a leading nonprofit providing assistance to people experiencing homelessness. In response to unmet community needs, our programs have grown to include emergency shelter, single adult supportive housing, and family supportive housing. Visit www.simpsonhousing.org to learn more.
Change Matters! Next time you’re at the checkout we hope you’ll consider “rounding-up”. If you prefer, you may donate a larger dollar amount at once by asking the cashier to add it to your total. All donations will appear on your itemized receipt and are tax-deductible. With your generous support, we can ensure that valuable organizations like these continue to work and grow in our community.
