Stater Bros. Charities and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) wrapped another successful “Light The Night” fundraising campaign in the quest to find cures, ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients and invest in research.
“The Stater Bros. Supermarket Family is very happy to give back by hosting the paper mobile program in all our stores,” noted Stater Bros. chairman and CEO Jack H. Brown. “It is imperative that we join in the fight to find a cure.”
Stater Bros.’ customers from all of its 167 supermarkets in June purchased $1 and $5 paper mobiles at the time of check-out to support LLS. For seven years, Stater Bros. customers and employees have raised more than $2 million, which directly benefit the Southern California community in the form of research and educational programs, financial aid, family support groups, first connection programs and countless others.
“The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is extremely grateful to Stater Bros., its employees and customers who are helping to make a difference in the lives of so many patients with blood cancer and their families,” said Mark Roithmayr, chief development officer, LLS. “Stater Bros. has raised more than $2 million since our partnership began seven years ago, and that incredible effort is going a long way toward helping LLS advance its mission.”
In addition to the campaign, Stater Bros. Charities will partner with LLS at its annual “Light the Night” Walk at Angel Stadium, which will take place on Saturday, Sept. 27, in honor of those who have been affected by blood cancer, including survivors as well as those who have lost their battle with blood cancer.
