Safeway

Working through its local Programs in the United States, Special Olympics is part of the Safeway Foundation’s annual customer fundraising campaign for people with disabilities. 

Safeway Supports People with Disabilities: March 29 - April 30

Safeway has been a national supporter of Special Olympics since 2008.

History of Support

Each year Safeway, one of the United States’ leading retailers, dedicates the month of April to raising funds and awareness to help people with disabilities. In 2008 the Safeway Foundation designated Special Olympics as a beneficiary of its successful campaign. While the hallmark of the campaign is a $1 donation at checkout, the company also uses in-store broadcasts and video messages to customers and employees to share information about breakthroughs in research and new programs that help millions of people with disabilities in North America and around the world. To date, Safeway has raised and donated more than $140 million to support organizations including Special Olympics, Easter Seals and a range of other organizations that help people with disabilities live fuller, more independent lives. 

"Safeway's annual fundraiser is helping to open a whole new world of possibilities and participation for countless people with disabilities," said Special Olympics President and Chief Operating Officer Brady Lum. "As a company that proudly employs thousands of people with disabilities, Safeway knows the importance of allowing people to live, work, and compete on their own terms."
