Since 2002, Stater Bros. has raised over $2 million for the American Heart Association.

During the month of February 2008, Stater Bros. customers and employees at all 164 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 partner ConAgra Foods made direct contributions to this American Heart Association Campaign.

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

The check presentation event took place at the Company's new Corporate Offices in San Bernardino on May 8, 2008. At this event, the Stater Bros. Store Managers from the Top 10 fund-raising stores and the Top 10 fund-raising Stater Bros. Clerks were honored for their outstanding efforts. Also in attendance was college student Vanda Mittal who suffered a massive stroke three years ago at the age of 15. She is now leading a full life and looks forward to helping others with deficits from cardiovascular disease.

Jack H. Brown, Stater Bros. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, 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."
