Stater Bros. Charities has raised $231,896 through its Kids 4 Hope Mobile Campaign, which benefits Pediatric Cancer Programs at the Duarte, Calif.-based medical and research institution, City of Hope.
Stater Bros. has conducted Kids 4 Hope for nine consecutive years, during which the campaign has raised over $1.28 million for City of Hope in total.
"The Stater Bros. 'Family' has a long history of giving back to our friends and neighbors in the communities we are privileged to serve," said Jack H. Brown, chairman and CEO of San Bernardino, Calif.-based Stater Bros. Markets. "We are especially pleased to participate in campaigns that make a difference in the lives of so many children."
During the month of October, customers and employees at all Stater Bros. Supermarkets were able to purchase $1 and $5 Kids 4 Hope paper mobiles at checkout. All funds collected went directly to City of Hope to support its pediatric cancer research, treatment and educational programs.
Stater Bros. Charities is a non-profit organization that supports critical needs in the communities where Stater Bros. employees live and work. Stater Bros. operates 167 supermarkets in Southern California.
