During the month of June 2009, Stater Bros.' customers and employees at all 166 Stater Bros. Supermarkets were given the opportunity to donate by purchasing $1 paper balloons, which were available at each check-out counter.

All of the funds collected will go back to the local communities served by Stater Bros. and will be used to support critical programs for cancer patients as well as for research towards a cure.

Stater Bros. has also recently formed a team of over 900 Stater Bros. employees and their family members who will be walking at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Annual "Light The Night" Walk on August 22nd at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.
