Sprouts, Sunflower Donate $100K To Aurora Victim Relief Fund

Last updated on September 11th, 2012 at 03:21 pm

Sprouts Farmers Market and Sunflower Farmers Market have donated $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund to benefit the immediate and long-term needs of victims of the mass shooting in Aurora, Colo., in July.

Sprouts Farmers Market has 146 stores throughout eight states in the Southwest. This includes 12 recently-acquired Sunflower stores in Colorado, bringing the total number of stores statewide to 21. The company’s increased presence in the state inspired them to respond by lending a helping hand in a time of need.

“This is our way of letting the community of Aurora know the family of Sprouts cares about them,” said Sprouts President Doug Sanders. “This is what neighbors do for one another. We are proud to be Aurora’s neighbor and help them in any way possible.”

An active participant in the communities in which it operates, Sprouts Farmers Market supports the efforts of the Community First Foundation and the Aurora Victim Relief Fund.

The Aurora Victim Relief Fund is administered through the Community First Foundation, a nonprofit public charity that provides tax incentives for donations as allowed by law. The foundation, which has served the Denver metro area for more than 35 years, is waiving all fees for the administration of this fund.
