Supermarket rounds up thousands for children’s hospital

Save-On-Foods Brooks Landing rustles up more than $5,600 for the B.C. Children’s Hospital

Save-On-Foods’ roundup challenge rustled up more than $5,600 for the B.C. Children’s Hospital.

The Brooks Landing location sent out a press release thanking customers for their support during the recent roundup fundraiser, when shoppers were asked to round up their purchases to the nearest dollar, with the cents collected for the hospital.

The store surpassed its $4,500 goal including more than $1,000 on the last day of the fundraiser, and since staff members reached the challenge set out by management, staffers got to throw pies in managers’ faces last week.
