COLTON, Calif. - Regional independent Stater Bros. Markets this Thanksgiving plans to work with several local charities to help feed more than 60,000 people.
Leading up to the holiday, the retailer has assisted qualified organizations that feed the hungry by making contributions towards the purchase of turkeys. These organizations are located throughout the communities served by Stater Bros., which include San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Diego County, and Kern County.
"Stater Bros. believes strongly in giving back to the communities we serve because we just don't do business in a community, we are part of the community," stated Jack H. Brown, chairman and c.e.o. of Stater Bros. "We're glad to be able to assist so that those in need will have a more joyous Thanksgiving."
Each year, Stater Bros. contributes goods and services to support a wide range of local charities, educational organizations, and community programs. It also donates over 2 million pounds annually of food and products to the local Inland Empire Food Banks. In addition, the retailer's customers and employees contribute more than $200,000 each year to the Food For All Anti-Hunger Program which assists local charities.
