Raley’s to give $25K in grants

April 22, 2011 |

In a continued effort to give back to the community, Raley’s has partnered with Frito-Lay to provide $25,000 in grants to make a difference in Northern California and Nevada communities through Raley’s Reach.

From April 6-20, nonprofit organizations, service groups and everyday heroes logged onto www.raleys.com/reach to share ideas of how to create positive change in their communities for the chance to win one of five $5,000 grants. More than 90 ideas have been nominated in the competition.

“Once again, our customers have overwhelmed us with their passion for helping others,” said Jennie Teel-Wolter, Raley’s community relations manager, in a news release. “Raley’s Reach is about encouraging creative thinking and inspiring action to make our community a better place to live. When we look at the more than 90 nominations, ranging from retrofitting a local dog park to providing warm, comforting blankets for children in need, it’s clear our customers are up to the challenge.”

Raley’s Reach is now in the hands of the community to vote online and decide how the grants will be awarded. The top five ideas that earn the most votes will receive $5,000 to make it happen.

With a dedication to giving back to the Northern California and Nevada region for more than 75 years, Raley’s offers the unique opportunity for grants to go where program participants recognize the greatest need. Grants will be considered in three areas Raley’s has long been known for supporting: improving the lives of children, creating healthy communities and celebrating the arts.

“Now it’s up to the public to get involved and have a say in which ideas will receive a $5,000 Raley’s Reach grant,” Teel-Wolter said. “Even if you didn’t nominate an idea, chances are there is a project that would impact your neighborhood. We encourage everyone to help us make a difference by getting online and voting for their favorite cause.”

Daily voting started today and runs through Saturday, May 14, at www.raleys.com/reach. Winners will be announced at the end of May.

Raley’s is a privately owned supermarket chain based in West Sacramento. The company includes four chains — Raley’s, Bel Air Markets, Nob Hill Foods and Food Source — in Northern California and Nevada.
