we dig gratitude & giving back

A new program to raise money for local nonprofits.

Rounding up at the registers with our CHANGE THINGS program is an easy way to make donations to great causes. We have chosen a nonprofit doing GOOD THINGS in our community to support each month. Simply round up to the nearest dollar (or more) at checkout and all donations will go directly to these organizations.


Our 2020 Change Things Nonprofits

We have chosen our nonprofits for 2020. Each month we will match up to 100% of the customer contributions.
