Safeway Foundation raises $15,000 for Santa Claus Shop

from The Villager of Denver | Posted: 04-12-2017

EXCERPT:

DENVER, COLORADO --- The Safeway Foundation made a $15,000 to the Denver Santa Claus Shop, a charity that provides toys to children in need.

150 employees at the grocer chain's Denver District Office in Centennial raised about $7500 at their holiday party last December. The Safeway Foundation then matched the employees' donation.

"During our holiday party, we ask our employees to support a specific charity," said Heather Halpape, Public Affairs Manager for Safeway. "Last year, our co-workers bought tickets to win various prizes, and they were really very generous."

"We're very grateful for Safeway's big donation. It's amazing that just 150 people could raise so much money," said Lauren Crist-Fulk, President and CEO of the Denver Santa Claus Shop. The gifts will buy new toys for DSCS clients at this December's four-day toy giveaway. It's also the second year that Safeway has made a substantial donation to DSCS. In 2016, the Foundation gave $12,000 to the Shop.
