Having a barbecue or party this long holiday weekend? After loading up your shopping carts, please consider donating to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey Diaster Relief Efforts. All of our Save Mart and Lucky Supermarkets are accepting cash donations in any amount at checkout until Monday night at September 4th. All donations will  be printed at the bottom of your receipt for your tax records.

The Save Mart Companies, the parent company of both Lucky and Save Mart, normally doesn’t set up Red Cross Donations Stations for disasters outside our service areas, but an exception is being made due to the gravity of the situation in Texas. The pictures coming out of there are heartbreaking. Our shoppers have always been generous at previous fundraisers for catastrophes closer to home. They will probably break our previous record of $41,000.
