Shoppers, Save Mart Help Support Valley Children’s Hospital

Save Mart is hosting its annual fundraising campaign in support of Valley Children’s Hospital. Every year this money goes to fund vital research and lifesaving treatment initiatives for the children in our communities.

“We are happy to partner with Valley Children’s Hospital to ensure our kids in the Central Valley continue to have access to vital care,” said Bobby McDowell, Vice President of Save Mart Store Operations. “Save Mart shoppers can now easily donate by visiting one of our participating Save Mart locations.”

From April 3 through April 15, Save Mart shoppers will have the opportunity to donate $2, $3, and $5 through coupons available at checkout stands. Once scanned, the donation will be added to their total grocery bill. All proceeds will benefit the Valley Children’s Hospital services. A total of 45 Save Mart stores throughout San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Tulare, Fresno, Kings and Tuolumne counties are participating in this year’s campaign. The Oakdale and Riverbank locations are taking part in the fundraiser.

Valley Children’s Healthcare is committed to ensuring the health and well-being of children by providing them with the highest level of care to 1.3 million children since their doors opened in 1952. With the vision to improve access for all children in the Central Valley, Valley Children’s Hospital has extended their pediatric specialty care services throughout the region. Children receive the specialized pediatric care they need closer to home through Valley Children’s Hospital, specialty care centers, satellite NICUs and partner locations. 

“For over three decades, Save Mart has been an incredible corporate partner supporting Valley Children’s through their philanthropic efforts,” said Robert Saroyan, the President of Valley Children’s Healthcare Foundation. “It is with the continued support of Save Mart locations across the Central Valley, along with their generous customers, that allows us to help kids across the Central Valley to continue their journeys towards health and healing.”

The Save Mart company operates 208 traditional and price impact stores under the banners of Save Mart, Lucky, FoodMaxx, S-Mart Foods, and MaxxValue Foods. In addition to its retail operation, the company also operates Smart Refrigerated Transport and is a partner in Super Store Industries (SSI), which owns and operates a distribution center in Lathrop and the Sunnyside Farms dairy processing plant in Turlock.
