Annie’s Ace Hardware (1240 Upshur Street NW) is offering a fundraiser to support Powell Elementary School on Saturday, May 20th, the same day as the Powell Spring Carnival. For every purchase you make at Annie's, you'll have the option of "rounding up" your sale and giving the additional change to support the elementary school.
Annie's supports a number of schools in the area but has a special partnership with Powell Elementary, which is right down the block from the store on Upshur Street. Their employees volunteer to be judges at their spelling bees, participate in Dr. Seuss reading days and host tours of our store.
As part of the Spring Carnival being held on the Roosevelt High School Football field on May 20th, Annie’s Ace Hardware will do a “round-up” fundraiser where customers will be asked if they would like to round-up their purchase to support the Powell Padres, the parent organization for Powell Elementary.
If your total comes to $13.49, you will have the opportunity to “round-up” to $14.00, with 51 cents donated to Powell. Pretty cool.
