Supporting Victims of the California Fires

The Smart & Final Charitable Foundation has been working diligently with the charities in the communities affected by the California fires to provide aid to the victims of this tragedy.

To further support our California fire communities, the Smart & Final Charitable Foundation has started a campaign in all our stores to raise funds to support those in need. All funds raised during this campaign will go to helping the communities impacted by the California fires.

We will give 100% of all monetary donations provided by our customers from the mobile sales to the following three organizations:

  • Food Bank Contra Costa and Solano*
