Albertsons Market Donates $5,000 to the Salvation Army’s High Park Fire Disaster Efforts

Stores throughout Colorado, New Mexico will be collecting donations through the end of June 

Aurora, CO — June 12, 2012: Albertsons Market’s Colorado stores are making an immediate $5,000 donation to The Salvation Army, in support of their disaster relief efforts toward the High Park fire that is burning just beyond Fort Collins. Additionally, the Company’s stores throughout Colorado and also New Mexico are collecting monetary donations for the rest of the month that will also support The Salvation Army’s ongoing relief efforts toward the wildfires in those states.

“We know from past disasters that our customers are very generous in times of need, and this is a perfect example how we can provide members of the community with an effective way to help during a crisis, no matter what amount they can give,” said Shane Dorcheus, Southwest division president. “Last year, Albertsons Market established a disaster fund specifically for situations like this one so that we can provide emergency funds while still fundraising at our stores. Through campaigns like these, we’ve been able to provide over $100,000 in disaster relief donations to help our neighbors in times of crisis.”

In just the the first four days of the campaign, Albertsons Market’s stores have raised nearly $10,000.

“The Salvation Army deeply appreciates the generosity of our friends at Albertson’s and their customers,” said Lt. Colonel Daniel Starrett, Divisional Commander for The Salvation Army Intermountain Division. “When disasters like this strike, we are there to offer support to survivors and first responders for as long as needed. It is only through community support and generosity that The Salvation Army can help others in times of crisis.”

Through this campaign, Albertsons customers in Colorado and New Mexico can select a $1, $3 or $5 donation that will be added to their grocery order as they’re checking out.  All funds raised will be distributed to The Salvation Army for their wildfire disaster relief.
