Strack & Van Til Checkout Challenge Aids Community

Mar 2, 2023

Have you heard of the Strack & Van Til Checkout Challenge Round Up? This successful year-round fundraising campaign supports charities and organizations throughout Northwest Indiana. Strack & Van Til is making a difference in this region, with a check donation for $100,000 in Strack & Van Til gift cards in late November and now with their check-out challenge. Independent retailers take note: they raised $574,110 in 2022, which was donated to local charities.

President and CEO Jeff Strack credits the success of the Checkout Challenge Round Ups to Strack & Van Til customer generosity and the commitment of Strack & Van Til employees.

"We have the best customers. They are the ones who give back to the community. Our stores, with the help of our employees, simply provide our customers an outlet to give to some of their favorite local organizations," Strack says. "Giving back to the communities we serve is just naturally a part of Strack & Van Til's culture. We are very grateful to our customers who contribute to these Round Up campaigns and make a difference in the lives of so many people."

Here's how it works: when customers shop at their local Strack & Van Til store, they have the option to round up their purchase to the nearest dollar. Those extra cents go straight to the charity or organization of the current campaign.

Some of the charities that benefited from this program include: American Heart Association, Special Olympics Indiana, Habitat for Humanity, Cancer Resource Center, Meals on Wheels, Tradewinds, Opportunity Enterprises, Boys & Girls Clubs of NWI, Salvation Army, Visiting Nurses Association (VNA) Meals on Wheels Program, Pink Ribbon Society, United Way of NWI, Boy Scouts of America, and the Foodbank of Northwest Indiana.

By simply rounding up on a purchase, customers can make a difference in your community and help support some wonderful causes.
