Registers Rounding Up For Special Olympics Arizona


Special Olympics Arizona (SOAZ) has partnered with Fry’s Food Stores for the grocery store’s “Fry’s Round Up” campaign, which runs through April 25. Each month, Fry’s pairs up with a charity to promote community awareness at all 119 locations throughout the state of Arizona.

The “Fry’s Round Up” charitable initiative encourages Fry’s associates to ask grocery-store patrons to round up their bill to the nearest dollar in support of SOAZ. Fry’s will also gladly accept flat donations for the organization, with all proceeds going directly to Special Olympics Arizona’s athletes and programs.

Donations raised will help SOAZ continue to provide year-round sports training, athletic competition and various support programs for nearly 16,000 athletes. SOAZ’s goal is to empower over 180,000 Arizonans with intellectual disabilities to be healthy, productive and respected members.

“Fry’s Food Stores is an amazing community partner, who has supported Special Olympics Arizona with contributions, in-kind gifts and volunteers,” says Special Olympics Arizona CEO Tim Martin. “We’ve partnered with Fry’s in the past with regards to Summer Games and Fry’s Fuel of Dream, and couldn’t be more excited to continue this great relationship.”

To support the initiative, Arizona residents can raise awareness by using the hashtag #FrysRoundUpforSOAZ or by visiting the event page. Special Olympics also encourages the public to sign up for Fry’s Community Rewards and select Special Olympics Arizona (#72451) as their charity of choice in order to help support the program year-round.
