Shoppers at Save Mart, Lucky and FoodMaxx can help relief efforts for wildfires in California.
The Save Mart Companies announced the launch of its fundraising campaign to support the American Red Cross Fire Relief’s efforts during the California wildfires burning throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and Central and Northern California.
Starting Tuesday, the “Round Up the Change” fundraiser will commence in all Save Mart, Lucky, Lucky California, and FoodMaxx stores. To donate, shoppers can round up the dollar amount of their transactions at checkout. The difference will go to the American Red Cross Fire Relief.
Each donation will be printed on the receipt for a record of the tax-deductible donation.
The organization will coordinate with disaster response partners to provide relief efforts and develop longer-term recovery plans.
“This is a quick and easy way for our shoppers to help support the heroic work being done by the American Red Cross in communities throughout California ravaged by the active wildfires,” said Hal Levitt, senior vice president with the company. “The Save Mart Companies is dedicated to helping the communities in which we serve and the “Round Up The Change” fundraiser allows us to help our friends, family members, and neighbors in their time of need.”
