Raley's Reach offers nearly $40,000 in community grants

Public can log into site for chance to direct $7,500 grants locally

Raley's Supermarket on Sunol Boulevard has joined in a company-wide effort allowing the public to determine how Raley's allocation of five $7,500 grants should be directed.

Today through April 19, the public is invited to dream up ideas and post them on Starting April 21, it's in the hands of the online community to log on and cast their vote for the project they'd like to see put in action. The top five ideas with the most votes will receive $7,500 to put their project into action.

Raley's grants will go where individuals recognize the greatest need--whether it's filling the local library with new books, funding an arts enrichment program for disadvantaged students or planting a community garden.

"The extent of your reach is in your hands, whether you want to leave an impact on your county, your town or your street," said Raley's Communitarian, Jennifer Teel-Wolter. "We're counting on the community to rally around the causes most dear to them by spreading the word about Raley's Reach for a chance to make a difference."

Visit tomorrow, March 31 to get started.
