ST. LOUIS, MO (May 8, 2023)– Save A Lot, one of the largest discount grocery chains in the U.S., today announced its partnership with “The Kelly Clarkson Show” to donate $10,000 to Little Angels Foundation, a St. Louis based nonprofit dedicated to feeding the disadvantaged in the city. “The Kelly Clarkson Show” featured Little Angels Foundation in a segment in April highlighting “Good Neighbors” that were making a difference in their communities.
“The great work Little Angels Foundation is doing here in St. Louis to feed children and the underprivileged made it an easy decision to want to help,” said Mark Kotcher, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “As a hometown grocer headquartered in St. Louis, we are committed to helping families put nutritious food on the table each night. When we heard about the thousands of people Little Angels Foundation has fed over the years, we knew a donation to them was the right thing to do for the St. Louis community.”
“When my wife Farah and I started Little Angels Foundation it was a way to work through the grief of losing our son. We wanted to give back to others,” said Riz Khan, President of Little Angels Foundation. “We’ve been fortunate to serve over 150,000 meals since we started this work and knew there was still a need we weren’t able to meet since we were working out of our home kitchen. When we heard Save A Lot wanted to help us grow our impact, we were thrilled. This donation will allow us to get a good start on expanding our efforts here in St. Louis and we are extremely grateful for their support.”
In addition to Save A Lot donating to Little Angels Foundation, “The Kelly Clarkson Show” also made a matching donation to the organization.
Save A Lot believes that all neighborhoods should have access to fresh, high quality food options. Stores focus on offering everyday low prices on great tasting, high quality private label brands as well as national brand products, USDA-inspected meat cut fresh in store, farm-fresh fruits and vegetables, and other non-food items.
