Rancho Cordova, CA – The Save Mart CARES Foundation is pleased to announce a donation of $5,000 to the Sacramento Children's Museum. The grant will support "Leo's Market Brought To You by Save Mart Supermarkets," a new exhibit inside the museum built to look like a mini Save Mart store.
Kids will be able to "shop" with Save Mart shopping carts and "buy" Save Mart's private label products, Sunny Select and Sunnyside Farms, and California-grown produce, just like the adults at a real Save Mart store. If kids want to be grocery store workers or managers, Save Mart aprons are available for them to wear and be a cashier, a boss or anyone they want to be.
"Grocery stores play an integral part of a neighborhood. It's important to teach children how to shop and choose healthy foods," said John Biggs, Store Manager at the Save Mart store on Folsom Blvd. "We're proud to provide a great learning environment for that."
The Save Mart CARES Foundation stands for: Community, Arts, Recreation, Education and Sports. Last year, it donated nearly $200,000 to organizations that aim to improve communities under those categories.
"Through the Save Mart grant, we're able to encourage young children to learn by imagining and doing," said Sharon Stone Smith, the museum's Executive Director.
The Sacramento Children's Museum, located at 2701 Prospect Park Drive in Rancho Cordova, is open every day but Monday.
