Valu Home Centers "Make a Change Campaign" Nets $38,690 for Kids Escaping Drugs


Valu Home Centers presented Kids Escaping Drugs with a check for $38,690 during a live televent broadcasted on April 8, 2015. The televent, broadcast from the KED Renaissance Campus, is an annual event that raises money and awareness for the work of Kids Escaping Drugs.

This donation was generated from funds collected in Western New York area Valu stores during the fifteenth annual Make A Change campaign. For six weeks, our cashiers asked customers to round up their purchase or drop their spare coins in a collection bin to help make a difference in the life of a young person in the communities that they serve. 100% of these donations will support the treatment and prevention of substance abuse in children and teens.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our generous customers who support the Make A Change campaign each year by donating to very worthy organizations like Kids Escaping Drugs. Funds collected during the Make A Change campaign outside of Western New York benefit local chapters of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, so all donors give where they live. We are is committed to giving back to the neighborhoods that we serve, and we are proud to support the important work of these outstanding community assets.
