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

Modesto, Calif.– Today, FoodMaxx, located on 1330 Churn Creek Road in Redding, started collecting monetary donations for The Salvation Army’s relief efforts in the Redding area affected by Carr 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. FoodMaxx is also offering to match donations of up to $2,500. Cash donations will be accepted now through August 3.

Participating FoodMaxx Stores:

  • 2051 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, Chico
  • 1160 Oroville Dam Blvd, Oroville
  • 94 Belle Mill Landing, Red Bluff
  • 1330 Churn Creek Road, Redding

The Save Mart Companies, the parent company of FoodMaxx, is a committed partner in the communities we serve, donating about $4.5 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.
