A fundraising partnership between St. Louis-based grocery chain Dierbergs Markets and hometown brewing company Budweiser has raised more than $23,000 for Stray Rescue of St. Louis.
The “Be a Bud” promotion, which ran through August at all Dierbergs stores, had two fund-raising components: Budweiser donated $1 to Stray Rescue for every Budweiser brand 30-pack sold at Dierbergs, and Dierbergs customers contributed to Stray Rescue with donations at checkout, of which 100 percent went directly to Stray Rescue.
Fifth Year for the Program
The promotion raised $23,889 to be applied to Stray Rescue’s emergency medical care fund.
This marks the fifth year for the program, which has consistently raised more than $20,000 annually for the shelter. Stray Rescue is a nonprofit organization that rescues stray animals and places them in adoptive homes. Stray Rescue abides by a no-kill philosophy and saves over 2,000 stray dogs annually.
