TUCSON, Ariz. -- Shoppers at Albertsons, Safeway and Vons will be able to help victims of the El Paso Shooting by having the chance to donate at the register.

According to a media release, nearly 200 stores through the Albertsons Companies Foundation from El Paso to Las Vegas are participating.

“While no amount of money can erase this tragedy, the Albertsons Foundation hopes to lessen the burden of victims and their families in some way”, says Shane Dorcheus, EVP and President of the Southwest Division for Albertsons, Safeway and Vons.

All money collected will be given to the El Paso Community Foundation that will help those affected by the shooting that left more than 20 people dead and several more hurt.

The fundraising campaign runs through August 31, 2019.
