In the spirit of honoring Stater Bros. Markets’ longtime tradition of not just doing business in the community but being part of the community, Stater Bros. Charities presented donations totaling $7,500 to three local non-profit organizations. The following organizations received donations from Stater Bros. Charities: at the Covina store, YWCA of San Gabriel Valley, dedicated to supporting families impacted by violence and trauma; at the Hemet store, RM Veterans Unity Ranch, a full-service horse ranch with therapeutic riding, transitional housing, equine therapy and other services for veterans, active-duty, amputees and first responders; and at the Yucca Valley store, The Way Station, a religious non-profit organization dedicated to feeding the less fortunate.
Stater Bros. Markets was founded in 1936 in Yucaipa, California, and has grown steadily through the years to become the largest privately-owned supermarket chain in Southern California and the largest private employer in both San Bernardino County and Riverside County.
The company currently operates 169 supermarkets, and there are approximately 17,000 members of the Stater Bros. Markets family. Since 2008, Stater Bros. Markets and Stater Bros. Charities have contributed more than $80 million in food and funds to local Southern California communities.
