Throughout August, customers can help schools in their communities by donating $1 or rounding up their purchase at their local Pamida stores. The Pamida Foundation will match up to $250 of store contributions in each community.

In addition, the Pamida Foundation will also donate 5 percent of sales rung up at each Pamida store today, Sunday, Aug. 21. This additional funding will be donated to the schools designated by each Pamida store to help underprivileged children purchase needed school supplies.

In 2010, the Pamida Foundation supported 950 charitable organizations and provided over $1.1 million dollars in funding to local communities, including more than $270,000 toward education.

The Pamida Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of citizens in the communities Pamida serves. The Foundation supports non-profit organizations that fulfill the mission of educating youth, helping families in need and enhancing the quality of life for senior citizens. Funding is provided by the support of company partners, teammates and other fundraising events throughout the year.
