(Victor Valley)– Stater Bros. Markets and Stater Bros. Charities are pleased to announce their collaboration with the City of Hope to raise critical funds for pediatric cancer treatment and education programs in Southern California. City of Hope, a renowned independent research and treatment center for cancer, is a world leader in treating blood disorders that occur most often in children, adolescents and young adults, including leukemia and lymphoma, bone, joint and soft tissue tumors, and brain tumors.
Between May 5th and May 16th, all Stater Bros. locations will be participating in the Kids 4 Hope in-store campaign. Customers can donate at any checkstand by adding a $1 or $5 mobile during checkout. Donations are also being accepted online or by simply texting KIDS4HOPE to 41444.
“Stater Bros. is committed to supporting cancer patients in the communities we are privileged to serve. That’s why we’ve partnered with City of Hope to raise critical funds for pediatric cancer treatment,” stated Nancy Negrette, Chairman and President Stater Bros. Charities. “According to American Childhood Cancer Organization, more than 15,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year and our hope is that this fundraising effort will help make a difference in the lives of these brave young fighters,” continued Negrette.
All funds raised throughout the campaign will support pediatric cancer treatment and education programs at City of Hope to address the needs of infants, children, teens, and families during hospitalization and outpatient treatment. Programs include: psychological and social programs, pediatric hematopoietic cell transplant program, musculoskeletal tumor program, school reintegration, and child life programs.
