Supermarket employees, customers raise thousands of dollars for Haiti

MILWAUKE (WKOW) -- Dollars for Haiti add up at Pick 'n Save, Copps and Rainbow grocery stores.

Customers and employees at Roundy's Supermarkets raised $46,316 to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.

The money is the result of a ten-day relief effort to help the victims in earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

From January 21 – 31, all Pick 'n Save, Copps and Rainbow stores owned by Roundy's featured icons at each checkout depicting a map of Haiti and the phrase "Help Haiti." The icons were valued at $1. Customers choosing to donate only had to ask their cashier to swipe the icon to add a $1 donation to their grocery bill. Many customers donated more than $1.

Additionally, employees at Roundy's headquarters based in Milwaukee made contributions to the effort through a floral sale and individual checks. Roundy's "Help Haiti" relief effort was designed to provide customers and employees with a convenient way to donate to Haiti.
