We are, and always have been, committed to supporting the communities we serve. Our fundraising efforts focus on hunger relief, education, health and human services and people with disabilities. We encourage customers in our stores to help us direct funds to local schools and youth organizations as well as health and human services.
We contribute on a national level, too. For decades we have sponsored fundraising programs that support the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Easter Seals and research in breast and prostate cancer. Contributions have surpassed $14 million, annually.
Our passion and concern for youth education has paid off as well. We are proud that over $22 million was donated for youth education in 2007 through our eScrip program.
Our commitment to hunger relief runs very deep. Last year alone, we gave more than $110 million in food to local organizations across the country.
We give as a company, through the generous contributions of our customers and our employees. At Safeway you’ll find many of the people who work here are personally and actively reaching out to help worthy programs in their communities.
