The Cardenas Markets Foundation will donate $120,000 in scholarships to students in communities where the supermarket chain operates.
Sixty scholarships of $2,000 each will be awarded during the 2021-2022 school year, according to a statement released by the Ontario-based company’s charitable division.
Recipients will be based on academic qualifications, financial need, leadership skills and a commitment to community service.
“The Cardenas Markets Foundation is committed to helping students advance their educational goals,” said Marco Robles, the foundation’s executive director, in the statement. “We understand that educational costs continue to increase, and we are pleased to defray some of those costs for our future leaders.”
