Through the generosity of its customers and associates, Albertson’s LLC is making a $56,000 donation to The Salvation Army’s disaster relief efforts in the South and Midwest, following the devastating series of spring tornadoes that impacted the area.
The fundraising campaign, which began April 4th and concluded April 30, allowed customers to select a $1, $3 or $5 donation coupon while paying for their groceries.
“Our customers and associates are amazing, and their generosity during times of crisis is unparalleled,” said Wayne Denningham, president of the Southern Division for Albertson’s LLC. “While the immediate result of the tornado in early April was certainly cause to mobilize, the process of rebuilding takes time and help is still needed as survivors rebuild their lives. We’re grateful that we’re in a position to assist The Salvation Army with its disaster relief mission again this year.”
Albertsons stores from Arizona to Florida participated in the collection campaign, and over the last year, customers and associates have contributed over $600,000 to help local organizations and disaster relief in the United States.
Boise, Idaho-based Albertson’s LLC operates over 200 stores under the Albertsons banner in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas.
