SAN BERNARDINO, CA-Stater Bros. Charities presented a check in the amount of $20,000 to the Community Action Partnership of San Bernardino County Board of Directors on July 15. Over the summer months when food reserves are traditionally low and children are also out of school, not receiving meals through school food programs, Stater Bros. Charities steps in to help. These funds were generously donated by Stater Bros.’ customers and employees this past holiday season during from their Harvesting Hope Summer Campaign.
Stater Bros. Markets Chairman and CEO Jack Brown stated, “We are in the business of helping our neighbors and right now, some of our neighbors need a little bit more help than the rest. It’s our hope that these donations will have a major impact in their lives.”
The food items donated by Stater’s is redistributed through the CAPSBC Food Bank network of over 200 agencies.
