A St. Louis based supermarket chain and its customers have donated 320-thousand dollars to the Salvation Army’s annual holiday campaign.  Schnucks announced this week through its "Round Up at the Register" campaign, customers had the option to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar, with 100 percent of donations benefiting the Salvation Army.

In addition to customer donations through round up, the company also contributed. Schnucks spokesperson Paul Simon says this holiday season’s total surpassed the 236-thousand dollars donated during last year's campaign.  Simon says all money raised during “Round Up at the Register” helps support local programs and services.

The funds donated through the round-up are in addition to donations made at the iconic red kettles posted outside the stores.  Schnucks operates 112 stores throughout Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa.
