Top Of PageCheck-out Relief

One of the very easiest ways to give to the victims of Hurricane

Katrina is to make small donations a part of your daily routine.

Opportunities abound as area stores set up collection areas right next

to their cash registers.

WaWa has pads of donation coupons at all of its counters. Signs say

that $1, $2, and $5 denominations are available, but only the $1

coupons are in evidence. Never mind, rip off one – or a handful – with

the purchase of coffee, lunch, or a

newspaper. All proceeds go the Red Cross.

Stop & Shop Supermarkets is collecting monetary donations for the

American Red Cross and American’s Second Harvest.

Wegmans is running a checkout donation program with all funds going

the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund – Hurricane Katrina.

ShopRite is having its cashiers collect donations through October 1

for the American Red Cross and American’s Second Harvest.

Whole Foods is matching customers’ donations up to $1 million. An

employee at the West Windsor store says that $900,000 has already been

collected. Donations are accepted at cash registers, and are going to

the Red Cross.

Wild Oats is collecting for the Red Cross’s efforts in aiding the

hurricane victims through September 30. A spokesperson says that

$2,700 was raised in the first week.

McCaffreys is setting aside September 21 as a day to aid the

hurricane’s victims. There will be food demos and entertainment all

day long. A spokesperson says that 5 percent of sales in the stores

will be given to the Red Cross.
