Grocery Store non-profit days

Postby molly419 » Sun Apr 24, 2005 12:59 am

Here is a fundraising idea that I am participating in, for Grand Rapids, MI to raise extra money for PF.
Local grocery stores, for example D&W in Michigan, have "non-profit" days, where 5% of sales go to Preeclampsia Foundation. We are having ours May 5-8, which is perfect with the walk a thon.

It was really easy to sign up, and doesn't take much work! [:)]

Good luck! I am not sure if any of our stores do anything like that but will have to check.
