LOS ANGELES -- Compton, Calif.-based chains Ralphs and Food 4 Less, both divisions of the Kroger Co., are collecting donations throughout February, Black History Month, to support African-American organizations with a focus on education, culture, and heritage.
The Ralphs/Food 4 Less Foundation will accept donations in more than 450 Ralphs, Food 4 Less (Southern California, Southern Nevada, Illinois, and Indiana), Foods Co., Bell Markets, and Cala Foods stores.
"Ralphs and Food 4 Less are committed to being a good neighbor. As part of our commitment to the communities our stores serve, we think it is important to acknowledge the achievements of African-Americans and support organizations that celebrate the cultural heritage of the African-American community," said Dave Hirz, president of Ralphs. "Our Black History Month fund-raising program offers our customers and associates the opportunity to support the outstanding accomplishments of the people and organizations that make our communities culturally rich."
Just a few of the organizations to benefit from the program include the Black Historical Society of San Diego, California African-American Museum in Los Angeles, Chicago's DuSable Museum of African-American History, and Las Vegas Inner City Games.
The Ralphs/Food 4 Less Foundation was established in 1991 by Ralphs Grocery Company
