For the third consecutive year, Stater Bros. Charities and Stater Bros. Markets are raising money for pediatric cancer patients at the City of Hope.
The Kids 4 Hope in-store campaign began May 10 and will last through May 21, according to a statement.
Stater Bros. shoppers will donate at any check stand by purchasing $1 and $5 mobiles as they complete their purchases. Donations will also be accepted online or by texting KIDS4HOPE to 41444.
“Cancer is a horrible disease, and when it affects a child, it can be devastating,” said Danielle Oehlman, director of Stater Bros. Charities, in the statement. ”That’s why we’re proud to participate in Kids 4 Hope again this year so that City of Hope can continue their important work for children with cancer and their families.”
The money raised will help the City of Hope’s Child Life Services, Patient Navigation, Academic Advocacy, Transportation Assistance, and Pediatric Palliative Care, according to the statement.
