Following the Fireworks Drive event in Perry, grocery stores Fareway and Hy-Vee participated in a round-up challenge to further drive funds for the town’s Fourth of July celebration.

Fareway Manager, Travis Landgrebe presented a check with the amount of $1,503.52 to Chamber Director, Bob Wilson, and Chamber member, Emily Leslie.

While both round-up programs have finalized, all opportunities to donate will subside on Monday, May 15.

The Fireworks Drive as of recently has collected over $13,000, inching closer to the $15,000 goal set by Wilson at the Chamber Banquet.
