Schnucks, whose employees are represented by UFCW Locals 655 and 88, recently announced a $100,000 donation to ease the technology crisis in St. Louis public schools and two charter schools — KIPP and Premier Charter — as many students return to classes virtually in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many students of these schools attending classes virtually this fall are without access to the technology tools needed for virtual learning. The St. Louis Public Schools (SLPS) Foundation will receive $50,000 from Schnucks, with each of the charter schools receiving $25,000.
“At Schnucks, we understand the difficulties that the pandemic has caused as well as the changes in operations that it has required,” said Schnucks Director of Corporate External Relations Schron Jackson. “Our commitment to those in need, especially children, in our home market of St. Louis remains steadfast and part of our company’s mission to nourish people’s lives and help strengthen the communities we serve.”
