Stater Bros. Gives $50K To CFF

Stater donation to CFF

Stater Bros. Charities, the charitable arm of Stater Bros. Markets, presented a $50,000 check to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) earlier this week. The presentation was made at the San Bernardino, Calif.-based company’s Baker store.

“Stater Bros. Charities is glad to support the advanced efforts by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to find a cure and allow patients to live much longer lives,” said Stater Bros. Chairman and CEO Jack H. Brown.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the U.S. (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

There currently is no cure for cystic fibrosis, though the CFF has been the driving force behind the pursuit of a cure since 1955.
