From now through Valentines Day, Harveys in Madison will be collecting donations for a very special cause. At each register shoppers will see change jars. The funds gained by this fundraiser will be used to purchase balloons and candy for the local nursing homes.
Then, on Valentines Day Harveys will gather all of the money they raise and purchase as many balloons and candies as they can. All of these items will then be delivered directly to the nursing homes and their residents.
Harveys decided to begin this fundraiser because sometimes, after being put into a nursing home, senior citizens can be forgotten during these smaller holidays. They simply want to let the senior citizens know that someone still remembers them and is thinking of them.
Harveys will be taking change donations at each register, and will also be accepting any donations of balloons or candy. They would like to ask the community to offer any support that they can.
