Companywide campaign has raised nearly $2.4 million over the last eight years

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Stater Bros. is proud to announce that the Company, its customers, employees and supplier partners recently raised $339,537 to benefit the American Heart Association. Since 2002, Stater Bros. has raised nearly $2.4 million for the American Heart Association.



During the month of February 2009, Stater Bros.' customers and employees at all 166 Stater Bros. Supermarkets were given an opportunity to donate by purchasing "Have A Heart, Save A Heart" red paper hearts for $1 and gold paper hearts for $5. In addition, Stater Bros. and its supplier partners Campbell's Soup and ConAgra Foods made direct contributions to this American Heart Association Campaign.

All of the funds collected go directly back to the local communities served by Stater Bros. and will be used for research and educational programs that prevent heart disease and stroke.

  • A check presentation took place on Thursday, May 14, at the Stater Bros. Supermarket located at 571 East Foothill Boulevard in Rialto, California. The Rialto Stater Bros. Supermarket collected $11,024, making it the top fund-raising store in the chain.
  • At this check presentation, Melissa Mitchell told a remarkable story about herself and her two young children who all wear pacemakers and their constant fight against heart disease.
  • The Arrowhead Regional Medical Center mobile health screen van was also available in the parking lot on that day to provide complimentary health screenings for customers.
  • The $339,537 check was presented to Ginnie Gatlin, the American Heart Association's Chief Operating Officer.

Jack H. Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Stater Bros., stated, "The Stater Bros. 'Family' of Employees is extremely proud of the outstanding success of this year's American Heart Association fund raising campaign. This campaign is an important tradition at our company and not only raises much needed funds but helps to raise awareness of the risk factors for heart disease and stroke."
