PLEASANTON, Calif. Safeway has kicked off its sixth annual 10% Goes Back to Schools program, which supports education throughout the United States.
Now through Sept. 14, the 10% Goes Back to Schools program will donate 10% of the sale price of more than 2,300 selected products to local schools designated by customers. Since 2005, Safeway's 10% Goes Back to Schools program has raised more than $15 million for schools.
"School districts have sent out an S.O.S. in the name of children who need our help in attaining an education," said Mike Minasi, president of marketing for Safeway. "It makes sense for businesses to make a financial commitment to education, because today's students are tomorrow's workforce. We see this as an investment in the future of our communities."
