Harris Teeter Invites Associates and Shoppers to “Support Our Troops” during Military Appreciation Month
Company Contributes Over $3 Million Since 2012 to the USO
CHARLOTTE – May 1, 2017 – Harris Teeter will launch its sixth annual Support Our Troops donation card campaign. The campaign, which benefits the USO, will run in stores throughout the month of May in honor of Military Appreciation Month and in support of active duty military and their families, as well as wounded service members, those transitioning back to civilian life, and families of the fallen.
Harris Teeter shoppers and associates will be invited to make $1, $3 or $5 donations to Support Our Troops at checkout, or during their ExpressLane online order. The company gives 100 percent of these donations directly to the USO to help connect America’s service members and their families to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation. The USO acts as an extended family for our nation’s military by delivering valuable programs, morale-boosting services, engaging entertainment and a touch of home through more than 200 locations worldwide.
“Harris Teeter is proud to partner with the USO to show support of our brave servicemen and women, as well as their families,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “We are thankful for the involvement of our valued associates and loyal shoppers who continuously support the good works of the USO.”
In 2016, the Support Our Troops campaign raised nearly $800,000 to benefit our service men and women; bringing the total donated to more than $3.6 million since 2012.
