Communities Benefit from $10 Million in Donations from Smith’s

March 8, 2013 by  

Smith’s Food & Drug Stores has released its 2012 Report to the Community highlighting donations of $10 million worth of cash and products given to more than 2,200 non-profit organizations in seven western states of Smith’s operations. The total includes $3.2 million contributed to 315 schools and non profit charities in Nevada.

The company’s charitable giving program known as “Neighbor to Neighbor” provided an average donation of nearly $75,000 per store location throughout Smith’s seven western states of operation. The support also includes contributions from the Kroger Foundation (Smith’s parent company), suppliers, associates and customers through in-store fundraising promotions.

Smith’s assistance is primarily focused in the following areas: fighting hunger, supporting K-12 education, children’s hospitals, promoting women’s health (primarily breast cancer), the development of minorities and women and support for local grassroots organizations. The report summarizes the company’s social philanthropy and lists specific organizations by state supported last year. The 2012 report is available online at

“Having partners like Smith’s who are committed to helping those in our community is priceless,” said Brian Burton, CEO and President of Three Square Food Bank. “Their generous donations help us provide wholesome, nutritious food to those less fortunate.”

“Our associates help us to reach out in meaningful ways within the community,” said Mark Tuffin, Smith’s president. “ We work with both our vendors and customers to support many nonprofit organiztions in their service to others.”
