Community Engagement

Giving back to our communities is important to Wagner's IGA and that's why we donate to and support mulitple local organizations.

Dollars for Scholars

Every year Wagner's gives deserving students at area high schools money to put to their education. The program is a community effort, asking shoppers to save their receipts through out the year and turn them into their local schools. Wagner's then totals the receipt values and donates 1¢ on every dollar back to the school.

Summer Reading Program
summer_readingDid you know children who read four or more books over the summer perform better on reading-comprehension tests in the fall than their peers who read one or no books? For the past 15 years Wagner's IGA and local libraries have teamed up to get kids reading. The Summer Reading Program encourages kids to set reading goals during the summer and rewards them for their efforts with prizes, free ice cream, and an end of summer party to celebrate their accomplishments.

Wagner's Green Bags
Paper, plastic, or neither? In an effort to help our shoppers make sustainable choices about their shopping habits we have started our Wagner's Green Bags program. We offer reusable shopping bags at a discounted price and reward you everytime you use them in the store. We also accept and recycle used plastic bags and offer rewards when you bring them in. We believe that small steps like these, make a big differece in our communities and environment.

Joint Township Wellness Program
We partner with Joint Township Memorial Hospital to bring wellness and health care education to our customers. Registered nurses regularly visit our stores to provide information about healthy living and perform free routine screenings, such as blood pressure, glucose, bone density and much more.
