  • Save-a-Lot shoppers can now do more than just buy groceries at the Camdenton store. They can give back to their community while they are at it.
    During the month of June, shoppers can choose to donate $1 or more to the Sharing and Caring Foundation when at the register.
    Every penny donated will be given back to local charities including Camden County Child Advocacy Council, Children's Learning Center, Citizens Against Domestic Violence, Helping Hands Homeless Shelter, LAMB House, Lighthouse Mission, Medical Missions for Christ, Pathway's Community Health Center and Share the Harvest Food Pantry.
    This is the second time that Sharing and Caring has hosted such a fundraiser at a local business in the lake area. Bear Market hosted a similar fundraiser in January and raised more than $1,000 for local charities.
    "We are always looking for new ways to raise funds," Board President Mark Kelly said of this type of fundraiser.
    Getting local businesses involved not only is a great way for the foundation to gain exposure in the community but it is an opportunity for the business to do something helpful and simply give back to the lake area, as well.
    "We are a local store and feel like we should support the local charities," Save-a-Lot owner Dale Holzer said.
    The board plans on seeing how this fundraiser goes and hopes to be able to do more like it in the future.
    Donations can also be made through payroll deduction or visiting www.sharingandcaringfoundation.com. The organization can also be found on Facebook.
