Community Event Day


Twice each year, we celebrate our Commitment to Community by hosting a special Community Event Day! On Community Event Day, each of our 41 stores chooses a local non-profit organization to support by hosting a cookout, and donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of specially priced hot dogs and pop. Members of the selected organizations set up informational tables and visit with customers to spread the word about their cause. In some cases there are raffles, prize wheels, and live demonstrations!

Here are a few highlights from our most recent Community Event Day:


Precious Paws Rescue with their prize wheel at our Del-Ton Plaza location in Tonawanda, NY.


The Syracuse Police Department talking about home safety at our Shop City location in Syracuse, NY.


Boyscout Troop 412 braving some inclement weather. Good thing they were prepared with a tent at our location in Bradford, PA!


The Eastwood Bears (Youth Cheerleading & Football) selling raffle tickets in uniform at our Shop City location in Syracuse, NY.

We sincerely enjoy putting on these events for local charitable efforts, and we welcome new organizations for each event! If your non-profit club, group, or organization would like to be part of our next Community Event Day, please visit your local Valu store and ask to speak with a member of our Management Team.
