For the first time, The Save Mart Companies handed out Community Leadership Awards to a Store Manager under each banner. Managers were judged on how involved they were in the areas they serve. The winners were able to donate $1,000 to the non-profit of their choice.
Vince Messina, from FoodMaxx #480 in Brentwood, chose the Kids Helping Kids Foundation, a program that empowers children to help other children locally and around the world.
John Romine, from Save Mart #46 in Angels Camp, chose The Resource Connection, which offers an array of family, nutrition, and prevention services for Amador and Calaveras Counties.
Randy Sentachi, from Lucky #707 in Daly City, chose the Dragon Boat Association, which fosters the growth and development of the sport of dragon boating in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Congratulations to all of our winners!
