PLEASANTON, Calif. — Safeway has announced its stores raised $14.5 million in October for breast cancer research. The company thanked its customers and employees for their commitment to finding a cure for the most common form of cancer for women.
"We continue to be humbled by the generosity of our customers and the commitment our employees have for the cause," said Larree Renda, EVP Safeway and chair of the Safeway Foundation. "This kind of fundraising outcome will have a real and measurable impact on the science of finding a cure."
During the last 11 years, Safeway and its nearly 1,700 stores — including Vons, Pavilions, Dominick's, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Genuardi's, Carrs and Pak 'N Save — have raised more than $108 million for the cause.
