Save Mart Supermarkets Donates to CCF

For the second year in a row, Calaveras Community Foundation (CCF) has received a generous $5000 donation from Save Mart Supermarket’s charitable organization, Save Mart CARES. These funds benefit the Career and Technical Training (C&TT) Scholarship Fund. At this level of donation, Save Mart moves into the ranks of a corporate partner and CCF is most grateful for Save Mart’s continued support.

Angels Camp Store Manager, John Romine, said, “Save Mart whole-heartedly supports the Career & Technical Training approach in offering educational alternatives to high school graduates.  We see our involvement as a win-win situation with the potential of having a ready made workforce for our stores.”

Save Mart Supermarkets believes strongly in giving back to the communities they serve.  The C&TT scholarship fund, administered by the Foundation, was founded on the belief that high school graduates need to have options in pursuing training or further education aside from the traditional four-year college. A wide range of opportunities exists in our region for youth seeking associate degrees and certificates leading to good paying technical or vocational career paths.

Recipients of last year’s scholarship funds selected the following fields of study: fire fighting, nursing, culinary studies, landscaping, automotive repair and maintenance, fashion design and veterinary medicine to name a few.  Continued generous donations like this from Save Mart help to raise the consciousness of other local business partners in assisting the youth of our community.  As these and other funds continue to grow, CCF will be able to award more and higher dollar scholarships to C&TT applicants.

CCF, a 501 C 3 non-profit organization, welcomes donations from like-minded businesses and individuals who see the challenge ahead of making scholarship funds available to students pursuing technical or training career paths.
