All Save Mart, Lucky and FoodMaxx stores have started collecting donations for local food banks. After grocery shopping, customers can donate at checkout. Just tear off one of the donation coupons at the cash register, hand it the cashier, and 100% that amount will be donated to the nearest food bank.
The campaign got a great boost on its first day thanks to Assemblyman Jim Patterson. He walked into one the Fresno Save Mart stores and donated $500.
The Hershey Company and Save Mart also partnered and made a $2,500 donation to each the Community Food Bank and Community Action Partners of Kern Food Bank.
Individuals and companies can make a difference this holiday season! Please consider helping those in need by adding a few dollars to your grocery tab. Last year, we helped raise more than $326,000 for thirty food banks in California and Northern Nevada. This year’s fundraiser ends on Tuesday, December 26.
