Grocer enhances relief efforts by offering shoppers the ability to donate money in-store

Modesto, Calif.- Today, Save Mart and FoodMaxx grocery stores launched a fundraiser collecting monetary donations for the American Red Cross and their relief efforts in Butte County affected by Camp Fire.

Shoppers can donate any amount at checkout and 100% of the proceeds will aid local victims. The donation will be printed on the receipt, so shoppers have a record of their tax deductible donation.

All Save Mart and FoodMaxx stores located in Sacramento and Northern California are participating in this fundraiser. Chico area Save Mart and FoodMaxx stores remain open.

The Save Mart Companies, the parent company of Save Mart and FoodMaxx, is a committed partner in the communities we serve, donating about $3.5 million annually to local non-profit organizations. We hope our shoppers will be just as generous as they have been in the past, if not more, for these disasters closer to home and we want to make it easy for our customers to help.
