Save Mart Supermarkets partnered with eScrip to manage its S.H.A.R.E.S. charitable giving program

FoodMaxx, Lucky and Save Mart S.H.A.R.E.S. community giving program will continue giving up to 3% a basket to local schools and community-based organizations

Modesto, Calif., 2016-Mar-07 — /EPR Retail News/ — Save Mart Supermarkets announced that it has partnered with eScrip to manage its S.H.A.R.E.S. charitable giving program. The new Shares powered by eScrip program continues the company’s legacy of giving up to 3% of shoppers’ eligible purchases to local, community-based organizations. The advantage for FoodMaxx, Lucky and Save Mart shoppers is that the program is now electronic. Shoppers will be able to see online how much they’re donating, and organizations can track what they’re getting. The more their supporters shop, the bigger the quarterly check the group receives!

“From the products we sell to the money we give, we’ve built our livelihood around helping others thrive,” said Nicole Pesco, Co-President & Chief Strategy and Branding Officer. “Our goal is to strengthen and nourish our communities—from food banks to schools, scouts to seniors — and Shares Powered by eScrip will be instrumental in helping more people.”

“We are so excited about this new partnership – with the generosity of Save Mart, Lucky and Food Maxx combined with the power of the eScrip program, Shares powered by eScrip will result in millions of dollars to our local schools and communities” said Joanne Remillard, Executive Vice President, Electronic Scrip Inc.

As an added incentive for organizations to sign-up, the Top 10 Shares Powered by eScrip earners for the month of April will receive a package of 4 tickets to NASCAR’s Toyota/Save Mart 350 in June at Sonoma Raceway to help them fundraise some more.

All shoppers, schools, churches and 501(c)3 organizations will be required to sign up on www.eScrip.com/shares in order to give or receive donations. Even those who were under our old S.H.A.R.E.S. program will have to re-register. In fact, the S.H.A.R.E.S. cards that customers were required to swipe at checkout to direct donations will no longer work as of April 1. Customers will still be able to earn points for themselves under the Save Smart or Lucky You rewards program, which can then be redeemed for free merchandise and dollars-off coupons.

Each year Save Mart donates more than $5 million and thousands of tons of food in support of the communities we serve … about $4 million of that was through S.H.A.R.E.S.
