We are part of the local community, and we are passionate about supporting local causes important to our customers. Each year, Country Fair partners with a number of local charities to support their outstanding work in our community. All Country Fair fundraising efforts and charitable contributions are kept local to benefit our customers and communities.
Over the past 13 years, Country Fair has raised close to $1,400,000 to support our local Muscular Dystrophy Association.
United Way Imagination Library $140,000
Country Fair supports United Way’s The Dolly Parton Imagination Library initiative which provides a free book each month to all children enrolled in the program. It is designed to increase literacy rates and is open to all children under the age of five, regardless of household income.
Flagship Niagara League $40,000
A $40,000 grant from Country Fair enabled 900 8th grade students in Erie, and the surrounding area to sail on the Brig Niagara. They learned about the War of 1812, the basics of knot tying, and what shipboard life was like for 19th-century sailors. During the month of September 2015, customers were able to contribute to 8th grade daysails by purchasing a Sailing Program placard at Country Fair stores.
