Within minutes of walking into my local Safeway I heard a positive shout from a team member on the intercom, “Attention Everyone, we have ANOTHER donation for Home Team Harvest!” Cheers and applause rang out through the store. This scenario repeated itself over and over for the duration of my shopping trip. It’s no surprise, as Kenmore Safeway employees have a reputation of getting creatively involved with their customers. I shop there because I enjoy knowing this team encourages a better community.
If you can make it to the Kenmore Safeway store to experience for yourself, great! You can purchase a bag for $10 at any Western Washington Safeway throughout the month of November. Donations go directly to Northwest Harvest and will be distributed to a local food bank. You can also donate to any U.S. Bank, in addition to visiting one of our several locations on December 1st for our 12th annual Home Team Harvest.
This year, our goal is to raise 3 million meals, and it is people like the Kenmore Safeway employees who make goals like this achievable.
