Modesto, Calif., 2015-9-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — A nine-day campaign where shoppers at Save Mart and Lucky Supermarkets could donate to the American Red Cross at checkout stands netted more than $41,000 for the organization’s fire relief efforts in Northern California.
This is in addition to a new delivery of 2700 servings of tuna, fruit bowls, granola bars and other snacks to a warehouse in Calistoga for the Red Cross.
Our family-owned company has also helped other non-profits throughout the fire emergencies.
- For the Butte Fire, our Save Mart store in Angel Camp gave pallets of bottled water and ice to Cal-Fire and meals to the Salvation Army to feed its evacuees. Our Save Mart store in Jackson donated food, supplies and a refrigerator to the Sutter Creek Church of Nazarene.
- For the Valley Fire, our Lucky store in Ukiah continues to be a clothing and household drop-off site. And our FoodMaxx store in Yuba City and Lucky store in Napa donated cases of bottled water.
- And for the Tassajara Fire, our Lucky store in Pacific Grove donated bottled water for firefighters and residents.
We are part of the communities affected by the fires and will continue to monitor donation requests.
