Bashas' makes big donation to California company doing work in Valley

$50,000 grant part of annual giving to local nonprofits

Bashas' again is donating a large some to a nonprofit group doing things in the Valley, and this time it is giving $50,000 to a California company that works with veterans.

The Chandler-based supermarket chain announced Coronado, California-based C4 Foundation was the winner of its annual Community Choice Charity Challenge.

Each year, Bashas' highlights a local nonprofit with its Charity of Month campaign. That program represented 32 different nonprofits that were put into contention in a field that was whittled down to 10 fnalists.

Online voting was used to determine the winner. C4 Foundation is dedicated to helping U.S. Navy SEAL team members and their families deal with the stress of repeated deployments. It is named after Charles Humphrey Keating IV, who was killed in action in 2016 while supporting a mission to help a small group of U.S. forces in northern Iraq who were battling Islamic State fighters, according to a release from the Pentagon.

Despite its California location, C4 does work in the Valley, organizers said.

In addition to the big prize, Bashas' gave $1,500 each to the 10 finalists. They were:

  • Arizona Humane Society
  • Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • Child Crisis Arizona
  • HonorHealth Foundation
  • Northern Arizona Healthcare
  • Ronald McDonald House Chariies of Central and Northern Arizona and Southern Arizona
  • The Salvation Army
  • Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center
  • St. Vincet de Paul

The long-time Valley grocer chain was sold last year to California-based Raley's Cos. in a large West Coast supermarket merger.
