Valu Home Centers 2017 “Make a Change Campaign” Nets $18,695 for Make-A-Wish Foundation


For six weeks, their cashiers asked customers to round up their purchase or drop their spare coins in a collection bin to help grant wishes for children with life-threatening conditions. Since we are passionate about giving where we live, our donation is divided between the two Make-A-Wish affiliates that make up the Erie, PA and Central New York communities that we serve.

100% of these donations will support Make-A-Wish of Greater PA, and Make-A-Wish of Central NY as they improve the quality of life for children and their families facing the unimaginable through the power of a wish.

Valu Home Centers is happy to cover all administrative costs and associated fees from this fundraising campaign to ensure that every penny of your contribution goes directly to young people in need.

"Valu’s philosophy is to give where you live, and we’re excited to give back to this community that has supported us over the years.” President and CEO Michael Ervolina Jr. explained with pride.

Over the last 18 years, Valu Home Centers has raised and donated $294,170 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Valu Home Centers would like to express their sincere gratitude to their generous customers who support the Make A Change campaign each year by donating to very worthy organizations like Make-A-Wish of Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Valu would also like to thank their Central New York and Erie area media partners for their continued support; Erie News Now and WSTM!
