Add to a field to multiple contacts at once

I know if I create a LookUp, view all contacts, and then select Edit > Replace Field... I can replace a field, but what if I want to add to a field? 

 

For example, there is a Client Type field that has several different items that can be added via a checkbox list. If I have a non-dymamic group of contacts, and I want to add something to the Client Type field on each contact but not REPLACE it, as some of them already have values in their Client Type field that I do not want to erase.

 

Swap Field and Copy Field don't do want I want either, I think. Is there a way to "add to" a field?

 

Thanks,
