Pleasanton-based Safeway Inc. and The Safeway Foundation have launched a campaign that will fund important 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 (MDA) and Special Olympics.
These are the world's most prominent and respected organizations providing services to people with disabilities, conducting ground-breaking research to treat developmental and neuromuscular disease, and making competitive sports accessible to everyone.
"These three organizations have transformed the lives of millions of people with a range of special needs," said Larree Renda, Safeway Executive Vice President 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 vital efforts of the Support for People with Disabilities campaign partners. The funds have financed critical programs and raised public awareness about the important work these organizations perform every day. n
