Superior Grocers Raises $5K for Education
Superior Grocers has awarded a $5,000 donation to Bassett High School in La Puente, Calif., through its non-profit organization, Superior Foundation. The school was selected through an on-going collaboration with the City of Industry’s Chamber of Commerce and the City of Industry mayor’s office.
Bassett High School serves a population of 1,294 students for grade levels 9 through 12, primarily comprised of 93 percent Latino students residing in the La Puente and City of Industry areas.
"It is extremely important to be connected with the community," said Mimi Song, president and& CEO of Superior Grocers. “In addition to striving to make our customers’ shopping experience the best, we are also dedicated to serving the community. Throughout the year, we donate thousands of dollars to local schools. Superior will always be an active partner in the local community.”
A check presentation was held today at Superior’s City of Industry store, during which Superior executives presented the school award to City of Industry Mayor Jeff Parriott, Bassett Unified school District’s Superintendent, Martin Galindo, School Principal Salvador Flores and Chamber of Commerce representative, Ron Whitamore.
For the past 15 years, the Superior Foundation has raised over $2 million for many local elementary, high schools, and youth programs. Scholarships have been given to over 230 schools and non-profit organizations in Southern California.
