Stater Bros. Charities has promoted Danielle Oehlman to the position of director. While continuing to report to Stater Bros. Charities Chairman and President Nancy Negrette, Oehlman will be responsible for the nonprofit administration of the organization and will represent the charity in the communities served by Stater Bros. Markets.
“Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, there has been an increased need for support by so many people in our communities,” said Negrette. “During this time, when in-person fundraising events have been cancelled, Danielle has come up with innovative ways to increase engagement with donors and the community so that the charitable efforts and fundraising of Stater Bros. Charities can continue to support the communities we serve.”
Oehlman’s career with Stater Bros. began in 2011 as an assistant for Stater Bros. Charities. Three years later, she became Stater Bros. Charities coordinator, and in 2017 she was promoted to manager Stater Bros. Charities, her most recent position.
Oehlman is currently working toward a professional certificate in nonprofit management from the University of California, Riverside Extension Center.
