We continue to ask customers to "round up" to make a difference for local charities. From October 1 through December 31, customers happily donated to "Westmoreland Walks." Westmoreland Walks, Inc. was created in the year 2002 by a group of area women who were touched by breast cancer in some way. Some battled the disease and some stood by a friend during the fight. Wanting to contribute toward breast cancer research and do something to help women during and after a breast cancer diagnosis, the idea of the walk (held every October) was born.
For the new year, "Action for Animals Humane Society" (AFA) was selected as the Change for Change recipient for 2019 first quarter. AFA is a 501c3 non-profit, non-government funded, no-kill shelter that keeps animals free from the threat of unwarranted euthanasia. Westmoreland Country's oldest no-kill shelter, they provide care for abused, abandoned and stray dogs and cats of Westmoreland County for over 30 years!
The Change for Change program asks customers if they would like to donate their change or “cents,” rounded up to the next dollar, from their purchase. The “cents” are donated to a local nonprofit. A new charity is selected each quarter based on input from G Squared’s social media followers.
