Superior Grocers Donates Funds to Local Schools
Regional independent Superior Grocers and Colgate-Palmolive Company will be awarding 19 area schools with a $1,000 monetary donation from its “Superior for Education” Program.
“At Superior, we are committed to establishing a special connection with our customers throughout Southern California,” said Phil Lawrence, COO of Superior Grocers. “Through our Superior for Education’ program, we partner with caring companies like Colgate-Palmolive, to help generate donations that benefit our communities’ schools.”
Launched earlier this year, the “Superior for Education” program establishes a partnership between Superior Grocers and vendors to support education and help raise funds for local schools in Southern California communities. This new program will run throughout the year and as a result, is expected to award thousands of dollars to Southern California schools. Schools were selected based on their proximity to Superior store locations.
“Superior Grocers values the importance of the community’s vitality and educational programs,” said Mimi Song, president and CEO of Superior Grocers. “We are active partners in the communities we serve and will continue to support the improvement of education throughout Southern California.”
A special ceremony to award these donations to school representatives will be held on Thursday, May 24, at a Superior Grocers’ store in Montebello, Calif.
