The Salvation Army Makes it Happen

Programs That Help

In this new century, The Salvation Army is serving more people in the USA than ever before. They are already seeing large increases in the number of Americans seeking the basic necessities of life - food, shelter, and warmth. Approximately 30 million people received help from The Salvation Army in 2011, but the magnitude of the mission facing The Salvation Army in communities throughout the United States remains great. 

Not only does the Salvation Army help collect, sort and distribute over 20,000 coats a year in our region, but they offer more services to those in need than we can list here! 

Please go to www.salvationarmyusa.org for a full list of services. 

We simply could not execute our plan to deliver coats to struggling families each year without the volunteers and staff at the Salvation Army locations listed below. 

Raley's, union reach agreement

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - On Tuesday, members of Raley's supermarket chain and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union reached a tentative agreement following a nine-day strike.

"This is very exciting because this contract provides us with the cost savings we need to fund our vision and the initiatives to make us more competitive in the 21st Century," said Mike Teel, of Raley's president. "I greatly appreciate the incredible effort put forth by our employees and company during this time as well as thank the many customers who continued to support us. As one of the last large family-owned grocery chains, it will be great to have everyone back working again." 

The UFCW was able to preserve their union-run health plan, one of the main points of contention during the strike.

Union reaches tentative pact with Raley's rival

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA (AP) - The union on strike over contract talks with a major Northern California supermarket chain has agreed to new terms with a rival grocer.

Pleasanton-based Safeway announced on Thursday that it had reached a tentative contract agreement with the United Food and Commercial Workers - the same union on strike against West Sacramento-based Raley's. The deal still requires approval by the union's local units.

Raley's and Safeway compete for business in the Sacramento region.

Labor experts tell the Sacramento Bee the Safeway deal will put pressure on Raley's to also reach a deal with the United Food and Commercial Workers.

The union went on strike against Raley's on Sunday after last-ditch contract talks failed. But in a statement, Raley's disputed that the Safeway deal will have any impact on its labor dispute.

Britax recalls 60,000 car seats for choking danger

DETROIT (AP) - Britax Child Safety Inc. is recalling about 60,000 car seats because children can bite off a piece of the harness pad and choke on it.

The recall covers Boulevard 70-G3, Advocate 70-G3 and Pavilion 70-G3 models sold in the U.S. and Canada.

U.S. regulators say the seats were made with softer chest pad material that can be bitten off and chewed by children.

Britax says in a letter to the government that it has three reports of children biting off pieces and gagging on them. The seats were made from June 11 to Aug. 31. Britax will send new pads for free to about 3,000 people who registered seats. Other owners can call (888) 427-4829.

The seats can be used without pads until new ones arrive.
