November 2019 - Thank you Albertsons Safeway Foundation for your partnership! We are pleased to announce the Albertsons Safeway Foundation as our Corporate Donor of the Month.
From our Kettle Program to veterans in need, the Albertsons Safeway Foundation gives generously to support our community. With their support, we provide critical services at The Salvation Army Veterans and Family Center in Beaverton, Oregon for veterans and their family members. In 2018, the center provided 36,502 nights of shelter, served 109,509 meals, and helped 300 veterans transition from homelessness to housing. The center serves veterans from all eras and military branches, as well as their dependents for up to nine months.
Albertsons Safeway Foundation is also a proud Red Kettle Partner. From its humble origin as a fundraiser started by a Salvation Army officer in San Francisco in 1891, the Red Kettle Campaign has grown into one of the most recognizable and important charitable campaigns in the United States. As part of the campaign, more than 25,000 Salvation Army workers and volunteers spread throughout the country to ring bells and solicit spare change donations to the iconic red kettles from holiday shoppers. Last year, money raised helped The Salvation Army provide food, clothing, toys and other assistance to 384,251 people in need across Oregon and Southern Idaho.
Thank you, Albertsons Safeway Foundation, for doing the most good!
