Supporting Diversity and Inclusion of All Abilities

We believe that all people should have equal opportunity to live a healthy and full life, regardless of ability.

Over the years we’ve supported many organizations that transform the lives of millions of people with a range of special needs including the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Easter Seals, Special Olympics, and a range of community-based employment and job coaching organizations focused on serving people with disabilities. We fund organizations that:

  • Provide access for children to ability-specific camps
  • Help individuals receive specialty services
  • Give people employment training and help to gain employment
  • Provide people with care and treatment

We continue to fund organizations that assist our neighbors to live healthier lives and reach their full potential, regardless of ability.

Albertsons Safeway Sponsors Gig Harbor MDA Summer Camp

MDA Summer Camps provides thousands of kids with muscular dystrophy and related muscle-debilitating diseases “the best week of the year.”  Safeway Albertsons is proud to be sponsoring three camps this summer in Western Washington, Eastern Washington and Alaska.  The campers get an entire week to enjoy adventures like horseback riding, swimming and fishing, while developing lifelong friendships, self-confidence and independence.  In June, 2017 in Western Washington, more than a dozen employees from eight Safeway and Albertsons stores volunteered their time to host a carnival day for the kids at Camp Winslow in Gig Harbor.  The kids played games, won prizes and had a lunch served by Safeway and Albertsons volunteers.  In July, 2017, Safeway and Albertsons employees in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho hosted a sponsor day at Camp Twinlow in Northern Idaho.  They helped build cardboard boats for a race on the lake and cooked a delicious BBQ dinner for the campers.
