Earlier this month, Safeway Foundation announced the distribution of $308,175 in grants to 27 local and regional organizations, including a generous grant of $20,000 to Special Olympics Virginia. Throughout the month of July, The Safeway Foundation and Safeway stores in the Eastern Region conducted a fundraising campaign, collecting customer donations at checkout.

Thanks to Safeway customers' charitable giving, Special Olympics Virginia is able to deliver Unified Sports® programs in Northern Virginia and across the state to more than 400 PK-12 school partners!
