Funds from this gift will help Clothes For Kids provide school wardrobes for more than 4,500 low-income students in Snohomish County.
Fred Meyer Fund community grants are funded solely by donations from Fred Meyer employees. The $1.4 million dollars collected through associate donations in 2013 will be allocated by the Fred Meyer Fund as community grants in the four western states where the company operates.
“We understand how important the Clothes for Kids organization is to our customers and employees and we are thrilled to be able to help the program,” said Zach Stratton, Philanthropy Coordinator for Fred Meyer stores. “Our employees throughout the company have been extremely generous and their annual donations allow us to make grants like this that impact the communities where they live and work.”
The Fred Meyer Fund assists non-profit organizations dedicated to youth development, hunger reduction, military family support, cancer research and awareness, and environmental education in communities served by 133 Fred Meyer stores in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.
