Shop at Safeway and support Easter Seals

Here at Easter Seals Bay Area, We are still glowing over the recent launch event for Safeway’s April campaign supporting people with autism and other disabilities. It was a star-studded party at the Alameda, California Safeway store, featuring U.S. Olympic Gold Medal Skater Kristi Yamaguchi and NBA Great Sam Perkins.

Once again, Safeway is conducting its annual April fundraising campaign, which coincides with Autism Awareness Month. Just stop into a Safeway store during the month of April and support Easter Seals by donating at check-out stands. Store clerks will ask if you’d like to make a donation. Your donation will support the exceptional programs that make a difference in our community.

Safeway Inc. is one of Easter Seals Bay Area’s most generous corporate partners. Easter Seals Bay Area is honored to have the support of Safeway, its employees and customers. Together, we are helping children and adults living with autism and other disabilities.

Safeway’s commitment to local communities is coordinated by the Safeway Foundation, under the direction of Larree Renda, who wrote a guest blog here earlier this month. She says, “One of the reasons we’ve been with Easter Seals all these years is because the money we raise stays in local communities. And, Easter Seals is the best in its class at doing things efficiently so that the dollars raised go directly to clients served by the organization.”

    One of the baggers at our local Safeway has autism. I always make a point of going to his line at the grocery store.

    i wonder how much safeway profits from each charity. everytime they open a new store its paid for with charity money. they actually force workers to ask for charity money or the worker faces getting fired. wow that is really charity people.

    Completley jealous that you were able to meet Kristi Yamaguchi. She is amazing. And, having grown-up with Safewy stores in the Seattle area I can also commend their committment to hiring individuals with disabilities. Thanks Safeway – you are a great partner!
