Stater Bros. Donates to U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots
Stater Bros. Charities, the charitable arm of San Bernardino, Calif.-based Stater Bros. Markets, presented a check for $26,000 to representatives from the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program at a ceremony held at the Stater Bros. corporate offices earlier this month. This is the eight consecutive year Stater Bros. has donated to the cause.
The United States Marine Corps will use the donation to purchase thousands of toys to be distributed to community-based organizations in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. The organizations will donate the toys to local children and families who are in need of a helping hand this holiday season.
“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. Markets. “We are very proud to help make the Holiday wishes of so many children come true this year by supporting the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program.”
The donation was made possible through a partnership between Stater Bros. Charities, Stater Bros. Markets, and the manufacturers of Stater Bros. brand products.
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.
