Safeway kicks off campaign to support people with disabilities


For the month of April, nearly 1,700 Safeway stores in the U.S. and Canada will raise funds and awareness to  help people with disabilities.

“Assisting people with special needs of all kinds has long been a Safeway priority,” said Safeway executive vice-president and Safeway Foundation chair, Larree Renda. “As a company that proudly employs thousands of people with disabilities, Safeway directly benefits from the work of these organizations and is committed to contributing to their success and increasing their outreach.”

Donations for Easter Seals, Special Olympics, Rebuilding Together and a range of job training programs that help people with disabilities will be collected at every Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Dominick’s, Carrs, Randalls, Tom Thumb and Genuardi’s store.

To date, more than US$100 million has been raised. In 2010, Safeway donated more than US$200 million to a broad range of charitable and community programs.
