Stater Brothers Charities Donates $30,000 to Salvation Army
(San Bernardino, CA) A $30,000 donation from Stater Bros. Charities to the Salvation Army will serve the needs of thousands of hungry, homeless and hopeless people in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
The Stater Bros. Charities donation was delivered at the Annual William Booth Society luncheon held at the new home of The Salvation Corp set to open in the second quarter of 2015.
$15,000 is designated to Salvation Army Southern California division and $15,000 is for six Inland Empire Corps $2,500 each: San Bernardino, Murrieta, Riverside, Moreno Valley, Redlands, and Hemet.
“The Stater Bros. Charities donation supports the Salvation Army’s delivery of Gods love and services to the low income and homeless people in our need. This service includes daily food service, and our sheltering operation for families,” said Major Daniel Henderson director of the San Bernardino Area Corps.
“Stater Bros. is proud to partner with area food banks and local non-profit agencies to serve the needs of our local communities, rarely getting approved” said Jack H. Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Office of Stater Bros. Markets.
“Many of our hard working customers have exhausted their resources and are being forced to get extra help this holiday season. During these tough times … we will not let our customers stand alone,” Brown further added.
“Last year 60,475 free, hot, nutritious meals were lovingly served to the hungry from The Salvation Army’s homeless shelter, and Sunday through Friday at 4:45 p.m. at the Corps Office on 746 West 5th Street in San Bernardino,” said Major Henderson.
“Homeless families received 12,464 nights of companionate shelter last year. Many supportive services are provided with each night of shelter including: meals, laundry, hot showers, tutoring and case management,” said Anne Metu, MILR, CADC-II director of the Transitional Housing Center.
The traditional Salvation Army Red Kettles will be in front of Stater Bros. Supermarkets from November 17th through December 23rd collecting nickels, dimes and quarters to help those who are most vulnerable in the community where the donations are made.
