Fallston, MD (March 14, 2022) – Customers who shop at any of the six High’s convenience stores throughout Harford County can round up their total now through April 30 to benefit homeless animals at the Humane Society of Harford County (HSHC). Proceeds from High’s Keep the Change program will not only provide for the care and comfort of animals at the shelter, but also the many programs and services that benefit the community.
“We are so grateful to High’s for their commitment to supporting the local community organizations where their employees and customers live and work,” HSHC executive director Jen Swanson said. “Furthermore, this program is an incredible opportunity to expand awareness of our wonderful animals in every corner of the county!”
“We believe we have a greater responsibility to society than just providing a welcoming store to visit and a good place to work,” said Meghan Mattern, advertising & social media manager and director of corporate giving at High’s. “We are proud to give back locally to the Humane Society of Harford County in March and April through our Keep the Change program.”
Customers can round up their total at one of these participating locations:
• High’s #34 – 2906 Churchville Road in Churchville
• High’s #81 – 1230 Main Street in Darlington
• High’s #86 – 3711 Federal Hill Road in Jarrettsville
• High’s #130 – 4101 Norrisville Road in Madonna
• High’s #68 – 4802 Rocks Road in Street
• High’s #1 – 2420 Whiteford Road in Whiteford
In 1928, the High’s brand was born, and the ice cream store chain grew rapidly throughout the Mid-Atlantic states. At one time, there were more than 500 locations, making High’s the largest ice cream chain in the world! In 2012, the Phelps family acquired High’s and continued to build from such strong heritage. Today, High’s is a chain of 57 convenience stores run by a team of more than 500 talented individuals. The company’s passion to run well-operated stores serves as the foundation for its commitment to delight customers. High’s goal is to provide customers with the products they want in a clean, friendly and inviting atmosphere.
