Safeway Foundation, You’re Awesome!
When you visit Southern Colorado Safeway stores during the month of September, you’ll see signs about the Hunger Is fundraiser and get an option to donate at checkout. Here’s a not-so-well-kept secret: Care and Share Food Bank gets those donations!
We’re excited that this most all southern Colorado Safeway locations and their foundations chose Care and Share Food Bank as a charity partner for this year’s Hunger Is campaign. Every dollar donated at checkout will go directly to our organization. We’ll use the funds to help our family and children-focused programming to provide the healthy breakfast foods that more than 45,000 children and their family members struggling with hunger across Southern Colorado need to thrive. When every child has access to a nutritious breakfast, we can create stronger communities where no child has to know what it feels like to have an empty pantry, plate, or stomach.
Hunger Is, a charitable program of the Safeway Foundation, has a very broad and ambitious goal — to eradicate hunger in America. The specific focus is creating and expanding breakfast programs for children.
Please stop by Safeway locations and make a donation to the Hunger Is campaign from Sept. 1 through Sept. 30. Our kids will thank you.
