BOISE, ID — Albertson’s LLC is collecting donations through its in-store Food for All fundraising program across all of its stores in support of The Salvation Army’s disaster relief efforts in the Midwest and Southeast, following the devastating series of spring storms and floods that have impacted the area. The Company is also making an immediate contribution of $10,000 to the organization to help with the most pressing needs in The Salvation Army’s Central and Southeast divisions.
The campaign begins May 27th and will run through June 30th. Albertsons Food For All program features boards stocked with $1, $3 and $5 donation coupons at each check stand of their stores in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, New Mexico and Texas. Customers donate simply by selecting a coupon in the desired denomination and handing it to the cashier to be scanned as they are paying for their order. The donation amount appears on the final bill and is tax-deductible.
“Albertsons stores and our customers have traditionally stepped up to help disaster relief efforts during times of national crisis,” said Bob Butler, executive vice president of operations for Albertsons LLC. “The impact of these storms will be felt for months to come as the families and organizations in the devastated areas rebuild, and our thoughts go out to every family who has been impacted. Our in-store Food for All fundraising campaign gives us the opportunity to respond quickly to support the efforts of both our local non-profits and national relief organizations like The Salvation Army.”
“We are deeply grateful to Albertson’s LLC and their customers for their continued trust and support — especially now, during this time of great need for so many,” said Major Bob Rudd, Community Relations and Development Director for The Salvation Army in the western United States. “It’s just like Albertson’s to do the right thing at the right time for the right reason, and we are humbled by their generosity and kindness.”
