Stater Bros. Donates $54K to USMC Toys for Tots
Stater Bros. Charities, the charitable arm of Stater Bros. Markets, presented a $53,624.00 check to representatives from the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program. This year’s check was more than double the amount donated by Stater Bros. Charities to this organization in prior years.
“The Stater Bros. ‘Family’ believes in giving back to the communities we serve,” said Jack H. Brown, chairman of the board and CEO of Stater Bros. “We are very proud to provide extra funding to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program this year so that many more children will have their holiday wishes come true.”
With toy requests being at an all time high, Stater Bros. Charities wanted to help meet the needs of Southern California kids. Representatives from the United States Marine Corps attended the check presentation ceremony at the Stater Bros. Corporate Offices.
The United States Marine Corps will use this donation to purchase thousands of toys, which will be distributed to community-based organizations in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, and these organizations will donate the toys to local children and families who are in need of a helping hand this holiday season.
This generous donation was made possible through a partnership between Stater Bros. Charities, Stater Bros. Markets, manufacturers of Stater Bros. brand products, and five national brand manufacturers, which included Church & Dwight, ConAgra Foods, General Mills, Nestle, and PepsiCo. Stater Bros.’ customers support the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program every time they purchase select Stater Bros. brand or national brand products.
San Bernardino, Calif.-based Stater Bros. operates 167 Supermarkets in Southern California.
