Los Angeles-based Smart & Final is holding its annual fundraiser benefiting City of Hope’s Kids 4 Hope program.
City of Hope focuses on the treatment of cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases. Through Sept. 6, customers can donate at all Smart & Final locations in California, Arizona and Nevada, with all proceeds going to the Kids 4 Hope program.
“We are once again honored to partner with City of Hope to support their valuable, lifesaving research and treatments,” said Tinamarie Squieri, manager, Smart & Final Charitable Foundation. “The Smart & Final Charitable Foundation takes great pride in our participation in the Kids 4 Hope campaign through the generous giving of Smart & Final’s employees and customers.”
In 2021, the company’s fundraising efforts contributed $450,000 to the Kids 4 Hope program.
The foundation aids nonprofit organizations with a focus on hunger relief, health and wellness, team sports and youth development, education and disaster relief. In 2021, the Charitable Foundation raised almost $2 million to support 1,500 causes with the help of customers and employees.
The company’s 252 store locations offer products in a variety of sizes, saving customers time and money without a membership fee. Its larger format stores, Smart & Final Extra!, combine the warehouse store with traditional grocery offerings, such as farm-fresh produce and natural and organic options, to provide a one-stop shop for all.
