STATER BROS. CHARITIES GIFTS THE SALVATION ARMY’S OF THE INLAND EMPIRE $30,000Stater Bros. Gives back to hurting families in the Inland Empire
(Moreno Valley, Calif.) Donations will be made to non-profit organizations throughout the summer as part of the Harvesting Hope in Our Communities Program. Specifically The Salvation Army Food Pantries in Moreno Valley, Hemet, Murrieta, Redlands, Riverside and San Bernardino. They will get a much needed boost during the lean summer months when the Stater Bros. Charities will present a check on July 31st at the Salvation Army Moreno Valley Corps to aid in hunger relief. “This support is especially important during the summer months when many children of low-income families are more likely to go hungry” said Captain Julius Murphy, the Corps Officer of Moreno Valley.
Food reserves are low, donations are down and jobs are scarce. That’s why Stater Bros. Charities is stepping in to help make a difference this summer by donating $150,000 to local food panties.
This past holiday season Stater Bros. Charities collected funds at each Stater Bros. Supermarket check stand as part of the “Harvesting Hope in Our Community” campaign. Every Stater Bros. Store Manager also joined in the effort by placing food barrels in all 167 Stater Bros. Supermarkets at the front of the store. In total, more than 35 tons of food was distributed to local Southern California communities.
