Valu Home Centers 2018 “Make a Change Campaign” Nets $20,675 for Kids Escaping Drugs


Valu Home Centers presented Kids Escaping Drugs with a check for $20,675 during a live televent broadcasted on May 24, 2018.

The televent, broadcast on WGRZ – Channel 2 News from the KED Renaissance Campus, is an annual event that raises money and awareness for the work of Kids Escaping Drugs.


This donation presented during the televent was generated from funds collected in each of the communities that Valu serves, during the ninteenth annual Make A Change campaign.

During the campaign, customers purchased a specially marked Moonrays solar stake light, and $1 from each purchase was collected as part of the total donation. 100% of these donations will support the treatment and prevention of substance abuse in children and teens. 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.



Over the last 19 years, Valu Home Centers has raised and donated more than $725,000 to Kids Escaping Drugs.


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.


We would also like to thank our televent media sponsor, WGRZ – Channel 2, Buffalo for their partnership throughout the Make A Change campaign.
