Shopko Foundation Awards Nearly $1 Million in Grants

GREEN BAY, Wis., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Shopko Foundation is pleased to announce that it awarded grants totaling $981,000 during fiscal year 2012.  The funds were awarded through the Foundation's four grant programs - Community Charitable Grants, Green Bay Area Grants, Teammate Community Service Grants and Teammate and Family Scholarships.  The Shopko Foundation is proud to have awarded grants totaling approximately $26 million in the last 33 years in the communities where Shopko does business. 

"Shopko views each community where we serve our customers as our 'hometown'," said Mike Bettiga, Shopko Interim CEO, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "We appreciate the opportunity to serve these communities and strive to strengthen them through the Shopko Foundation's support of charitable groups and activities that are important to the people who live and work there.  We are committed to promoting healthy lifestyles and educational opportunities for our neighbors in all the communities where we serve and strive to make an impact through the Shopko Foundation."

Through its Community Charitable Grant and Green Bay Area Grant Programs, the Shopko Foundation awards funds during the year to accredited schools and 501(c)(3) programs which promote the education and health of Shopko teammates and customers.  The Community Charitable Grant Program awards funds to organizations or accredited schools in all communities where Shopko stores are located. The focus of the Foundation's Green Bay Area Grant Program is to strengthen the community where it was founded and where the company maintains its corporate headquarters.

The Teammate and Family Scholarship Program annually awards post-secondary scholarships to Shopko employees and their dependent children. The $2500 scholarships are awarded through a competitive process based on the students' academic record, leadership, community activities, honors and goals. Recipients are determined by an independent selection committee comprised of Wisconsin educators.

The Shopko Foundation is also proud to award funds to various 501(c)(3) charitable groups through the Teammate Community Service Grant Program.  The Foundation awards Teammate Community Service Grants twice annually to recognize and support Shopko teammates who volunteer their time for a non-profit organization in their communities.
