Supporting the communities we serve is “the stuff that counts”.

Community engagement is an important part of the culture at Shopko, and we encourage all teammates to give back by supporting the communities in which we live and work. Whether you choose to take part in an organized community volunteer event, volunteer on your own, or raise money for a non-profit, it all counts.

Our goal is to sponsor charitable causes that are supported in a meaningful way by our teammates and support the Foundation’s stated mission of encouraging the health and education of Shopko customers, teammates and communities. Teammates who volunteer their time for a non-profit organization in their community are eligible to receive a Teammate Charitable Service Challenge Grant from the Foundation.
