Volunteers from Albertsons Companies (Northern California team) joined forces with Sacred Heart, a food pantry located in San Jose, California. This collaborative effort transformed the pantry into a store-like space, offering clients a sense of dignity as they "shop" for their groceries. In a remarkable feat, our team managed to renovate the pantry into a full-fledged market-like shopping experience in just three hours! "This was fulfilling. I stock our store every day and it was fun to help stock a pantry for people in need"- Safeway Volunteer.
Sacred Heart Senior Director of Development Elizabeth Matthews explains the impact of the partnership on the community. “Seeing the transformation of turning our pantry into a true shopping experience is so inspiring. Watching our community coming together to treat all our neighbors with compassion and respect is truly magical. This renovation provides our members with the dignity of choice and shopping for the needs of their family. We are truly grateful to Safeway for this amazing gift.”
Together, we are creating a positive imapct, one step at a time.
