Community Involvement

Grassroots Events

Throughout the year, each Family Video store holds and/or participates in a variety of events that are designed to ensure that we are an active, participating member of the community in which our store is located.

These events range from family fun days, to movie donations days for United States military troops, to food drives for those in need. The possibilities are endless and are an excellent way for a Store Manager and his/her team to get creative and support their favorite causes.

Round It Up for Lymphoma

More than 750,000 Americans are living with some form of lymphoma, with 200 more diagnosed every day. Each year Family Video takes a leading role in the fight against disease.

For three weeks in March, customers are asked to round up their transactions to the nearest dollar. 100% of donations are given to fund lymphoma research and patient education at the Lymphoma Research Foundation and the University of Chicago Medicine's Comprehensive Cancer Center. Donations are also collected from local businesses and grassroots events (raffle prizes, bake sales, and other in-store activities).

To date, more than $5 million has been raised in support of these two organizations. Click here to learn more.

Report Card A

Throughout the month of June, Family Video gives a FREE overnight movie or game rental to students for every 'A' they receive on their final report card in any core subjects designed to ensure that we are an active, participating member of the community in which our store is located.

Holiday Turkeys and Hams

Every year, Family Video donates thousands of turkeys and hams to local families who need assistance throughout the holiday season.

Family Video employees have the opportunity to personally deliver these turkeys and hams to help make a difference in their communities.
