SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Rocky’s Ace Hardware begins its semi-annual “Round Up for Kids” fundraiser.

Rocky’s Ace Hardware is one of the country’s largest family-owned Ace Hardware dealers with 47 locations in nine states, according to a news release sent to 22News from Rocky’s Ace Hardware. The fundraiser extends through Monday, November 28, and customers are asked to round up their purchase total to the next dollar. The difference will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals.

  • Island Pond Road and Liberty Street stores in Springfield
