Alabama Power Appliance Center and Birmingham-based Planet Fundraiser have teamed up to help Appliance Center customers give back to their local school or nonprofit.

For every purchase made at any of Alabama Power Appliance Center’s 86 locations, a 10 percent donation will be made to the customer’s school or charitable organization of choice, up to the first $100 of the purchase price. The donation applies to any item sold at the Alabama Power Appliance Center, including furniture and electronics.

Donating is easy: Download the Planet Fundraiser app and create an account. Then choose the cause of your choice. Upload a photo of your Alabama Power Appliance Center receipt, and Planet Fundraiser takes it from there. If a preferred nonprofit or cause is not participating, it’s also easy to request they be added with a few simple steps on the app.
