Ralphs Grocery Campaign Benefits Kids

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 5 — Ralphs Grocery Company is pleased to announce that it is raising funds to support pediatric research, treatment and educational programs at the City of Hope.

Ralphs customers and team members can support the City of Hope’s pediatric cancer “Kids 4 Hope” program through the supermarket chain’s nonprofit arm, The Ralphs Fund, by donating their spare change in collection canisters located at the checkstands in their neighborhood Ralphs supermarket. The “Kids 4 Hope” fund-raising campaign will run from February 1 through February 27, 2010.

“With thousands of children diagnosed each year with cancer, the City of Hope’s Kids for Hope program is important in the fight against the disease, and Ralphs is proud to support this important effort,” said Mike Donnelly, Ralphs president.

Last year, Ralphs provided more than $8 million in cash and in-kind donations to organizations focused on health, education, the fight against hunger, developing our youth, and the environment.
