PLEASANTON, Calif. — Safeway and the Safeway Foundation on Friday launched a campaign that will fund programs that assist people with special needs.
Through the Support for People with Disabilities campaign, during the month of August, Safeway customers will be able to donate to Easter Seals, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Special Olympics.
"These three organizations have transformed the lives of millions of people with a range of special needs," stated Larree Renda, Safeway EVP and chair of the Safeway Foundation. "We've had long relationships with Easter Seals, MDA and Special Olympics and are proud to be a part of their mission to assist others to live healthier lives and reach their full potential."
Over the years, Safeway has raised and contributed more than $200 million to support the efforts of the Support for People with Disabilities campaign partners. The funds have financed programs and raised public awareness about the work these organizations perform.
