SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Aug. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Stater Bros. is pleased to announce that the Company, its customers and employees recently raised $200,000 to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.



For a two-and-a-half week period during the month of June, Stater Bros. customers and employees at all 165 Stater Bros.
