Stater Bros. Charities and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) concluded another successful “Light The Night” fundraising campaign in support of LLS’ mission to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. These funds will also help LLS invest in research to advances cures for blood cancers.
In June, Stater Bros.’ customers at all 167 Stater Bros. Supermarkets purchased $1 and $5 paper mobiles at the time of check-out to support LLS. For seven years now, Stater Bros. customers and employees have raised more than $2 million. The funds raised during the campaign directly benefit the Southern California community in the form of research and educational programs, financial aid, family support groups, first connection programs and countless others.
“The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is extremely grateful to Stater Bros., its employees and customers who are helping to make a difference in the lives of so many patients with blood cancer and their families,” said Mark Roithmayr, Chief Development Officer, LLS. “Stater Bros. has raised more than $2 million since our partnership began 7 years ago, and that incredible effort is going a long way toward helping LLS advance its mission.”
“The Stater Bros. Supermarket Family is very happy to give back by hosting the paper mobile program in all our stores,” stated Jack H. Brown, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Stater Bros. Markets. “It is imperative that we join in the fight to find a cure.”
In addition to the campaign, Stater Bros. Charities will partner with LLS at its annual “Light The Night” Walk at Angel Stadium, which will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014. This walk will honor those who have been affected by blood cancer, including survivors as well as those who have lost their battle with blood cancer. To learn more, visit www.lightthenight.org.
