Once again, one of Culpeper’s oldest businesses has partnered with the community to help take care of folks that are in need.

Safeway’s amazing clerks respectfully asked each customer in the checkout line if they would like to donate to the local Food Closet, and my goodness, did they respond!

One of our managers, Bob Hilton, went on a $5,000 shopping spree in the store to get the items we need most as a result of the Safeway family’s efforts.

This was in addition to Safeway’s participation in the Scouting for Food program, which was very successful again this year.

I grew up in Culpeper, and I remember Safeway and its employees have always held our community’s well-being as a high priority, sometimes very quietly in the background, and sometimes out front, leading the way.

Thank you, Safeway. The company and its employees truly do make a difference.
