In January Derek Sturtevant, Chairman of Kittery Trading Post’s Round-Up Committee, called the ETA office to report that his committee had voted to donate $1,000 to ETA. Carole asked Jim Bucar and John Andrews to contact Sturtevant to visit Kittery Trading Post to receive the donation.
They learned that Round-Up is a program that encourages customers to round-up their check-out amount to the next highest dollar amount with funds to be donated to non-profits whose goals are aligned with Kittery Trading Post’s core values. Each quarter, the company rounds up those funds to the next round thousand dollars.
Sturtevant, who is Specialty Sports Divisional Manager, chairs the employee committee that allocates the generated funds. ETA President Bob Hamblen, who is Saco’s City Planner, is proud of the recognition achieved by ETA that resulted in this contribution.
