Giving Back to the Community

Helping others has always been very important to the Harmons family and to everyone who works at Harmons. As a result of our passion and commitment, we've raised over two million dollars for local charities and non-profit organizations. Because we nearly always involve our customers and other community groups, we're able to give much more than we could alone.

Throughout the year Harmons gives monetary and in-kind donations to a number of non-profit organizations within our communities that many people may never hear about. What people do hear about more often are the promotions and events that involve our amazing customers and vendor communities. Not only do these annual events raise funds for great organizations, but they are always a fun and fulfilling time for Harmons associates and customers.

At Harmons, we love to give donations to deserving groups and organizations. Keep in mind, though, that we're on a budget just like everyone else. We wish we could say yes to everyone. Please visit the Business Center at your local Harmons for more information on how to submit a written request. Donation requests are handled on a store-by-store basis. Donation inquiries will not be taken by phone at stores or the Support Office.

Although we would like to say yes to everyone, we are unable to make donations to:

  • Individuals or families. (Sorry, we can't give cash or products directly to individuals or families.)
  • Professional seminars/conferences or employee recognition activities.
  • Taxpayer-supported agencies.
We cannot permit solicitation (fund-raising, leafleting, selling candy, selling flowers, etc.) on our property by any organization for any purpose. We do make exceptions for non-profit organizations that have been authorized by the Harmons Support Office.

Food For Families

Utah Food Bank
At certain times of the year we invite our shoppers to purchase $10 Food for Families grocery bags at our check stands and drop them in the Utah Food Bank barrels at the front of our stores.
