Safeway believes in building a stronger and better community and we give back through our philanthropy. Here are some examples from last year:
Donations exceeded $172 million nationally with $42 million contributed in this region. The primary beneficiaries are in three areas: cancer education; hunger relief, and health/human services. In the Seattle Metro area, Safeway donated thousands of dollars to charitable organizations in an effort to build a stronger community.
Over the past few years, three of the North Seattle area Safeway stores' participating in the eScrip program yielded approximately $190,000 for schools located within the Shoreline and Seattle Public School Districts as well as a several private organizations including Assumption St. Bridget School, St. John School, and St. Catherine School.
The North Seattle area Safeway stores have also provided food donations to a number of local food banks including Northwest Harvest, Volunteers of America, Hope Link, and Union Gospel Mission.
