Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 17, 2012
Sprouts Farmers Market and Sunflower Farmers Market presented a check today for $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund to benefit the immediate and long-term needs of victims of the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado on July 20, 2012. The large contribution represents proceeds of the sale of excess equipment from Sprouts’ recent merger with Sunflower Farmers Market.
"Sprouts team members here in Colorado are proud to lend a hand to friends and neighbors in Aurora to help meet the needs of the victims and their families,” said Sprouts Regional Director Tom Critz (right, center), as he presented the check to Marla Williams, President/CEO of the Community First Foundation, which administers the Aurora Victim Relief Fund. “We hope this gesture will inspire and unite others to give what they can, because there is a long road of healing ahead."
Sprouts Farmers Market has 146 stores throughout eight states in the Southwest, including 21 stores in Colorado.
