Shoppers Can Support Victims In Japan

Smith’s Food & Drug Stores is offering customers a convenient way to assist the American Red Cross in its international relief response to the earthquake in Japan and tsunami throughout the Pacific.

Starting March 14 through March 26, 2011, customers may make a donation of any amount to the American Red Cross by simply adding that amount to their checkout purchase. All funds collected will directly benefit American Red Cross international relief efforts in partnership with the Japanese Red Cross, the agency responding with help of food, water, shelter, medical supplies and other assistance.

“Smith’s feels a great commitment to the American Red Cross, a trusted organization made up of thousands of dedicated volunteers, who respond immediately to emergency needs whether in our own backyard or abroad,” said Marsha Gilford, Smith’s vice president public affairs.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and counsels victims of disasters; teaches lifesaving skills; supplies blood to area hospitals; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.  The Red Cross is a charitable organization and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its humanitarian mission.
