Stater Bros. kicks off Harvesting Hope campaign
Stater Bros. Markets and its philanthropic arm, Stater Bros. Charities, are stepping in and raising critical funds to support local food banks and hunger relief programs to address food insecurity in the communities we serve.
Now through Dec. 31, all Stater Bros. Markets locations will be collecting monetary donations to help fill the food banks with fresh and healthy food. To join the fight against hunger, customers and employees can contribute at any checkstand by donating loose change in the coin canisters, adding a $5 donation card during checkout, or scanning the QR code. To make an even greater impact, donations are also being accepted online or by simply texting STATER to 41444.
“It has been a challenging year, given the pandemic and the impact it’s had on the health and well-being of our communities. Families are struggling to put food on the table due to job loss, furloughs, and school closures; and worry about where their next meal is coming from,” said Nancy Negrette, chairman and president Stater Bros. Charities. “Hunger isn’t canceled, and with the holidays upon us our neighbors are going to need our support now more than ever. The pandemic, if anything, has reminded us that we could all use a little help from time to time. That’s why, it’s crucial we take action and raise funds to help our neighbors cope during this crisis and continue to thrive.”
Funds raised throughout the campaign will support local food banks and will provide relief so that families can put food on the tables, pay bills, and meet other basic needs.
