Ralphs Grocery Company is pleased to announce that it is raising funds to support environmental charities in Southern California.

Beginning February 1, 2009 and continuing through June 15, 2009, Ralphs is offering its customers and associates the opportunity to make monetary donations to help support organizations whose mission is to improve our environment.

Customers and associates can support local organizations that focus on environmental stewardship 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 through June 15, 2009.

Southern California environmental organizations that will benefit from the fund-raising drive include: ·

  • EarthShare California
  • Environmental Defense Center
  • Million Trees Los Angeles
  • San Diego Coastkeeper
  • San Gorgonio Wilderness Association
  • Sierra Club Foundation

“Ralphs has long been focused on both environmental stewardship and social responsibility,” said Mike Donnelly, Ralphs president. “We’re excited about the opportunity to partner with our customers and associates in support of organizations that share our commitment to creating a more sustainable present and future.”
