United Way

For several decades, Giant Eagle has been a dedicated supporter of the United Way. We believe strongly in its mission to serve others and improve the quality of life in the many communities we serve. Giant Eagle supports several different United Way chapters across our footprint through direct Team Member donations and a corporate matching gift, as well as an annual customer register donation campaign. Over the years, Giant Eagle has helped raise millions of dollars for the United Way.

Giant Eagle is also a longstanding partner of the American Red Cross, providing financial support and product in times of need. In 2017, Giant Eagle worked closely with the American Red Cross to serve those affected by recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida and the Caribbean. Giant Eagle’s efforts included sponsorship of televised hurricane relief fundraisers that resulted in tens of thousands of dollars going to those in need.

Enriching our Communities

Giant Eagle also supports many other community-specific partners, including: parks and libraries, gardens, children’s museums, science centers, zoos and arts and entertainment venues.

proud united way supporters

“As one of United Way’s longest corporate partnerships, Giant Eagle is a great neighbor in the communities in which they do business. Not only does this organization ask its Team Members to invest in their local communities, but they also put corporate matching dollars behind those investments, making Giant Eagle an outstanding United Way team player with significant impact on our community’s most pressing needs.”

— Bob Nelkin, President & CEO, United Way of Southwestern PA

Giant Eagle is Committed to our Communities

“Giant Eagle’s support of our community gardens program that dates to 1996, demonstrates their commitment to improving the region’s quality of life. Their longstanding support is a keystone of the program, and helps us to plant more than 130 gardens annually across western Pennsylvania.”

— Julie Holmes, Director of Development, Western Pennsylvania Conservancy
