The California state parks system recently announced a partnership with Stater Bros. Charities and Coca-Cola Refreshments to raise much-needed funds during a time of challenging budget cuts.

These partners team up for a short, intense campaign every spring to help protect local assets important to the community and improve state parks for families that enjoy them for recreation. Called Preserve Our Parks, the program is a six-week campaign with the goal of raising up to $1 million to support Southern California parklands.

The campaign encourages customers to support the region’s state parks while shopping at Stater Bros. Supermarkets. Shoppers can make a $1 or $5 tax-deductible donation to the Preserve Our Parks campaign at Stater Bros. checkout lanes through April 24, or they may donate online at http://www.preserveourparks.info.

Additionally, Coca-Cola Refreshments will donate one dollar when consumers buy $10 worth of participating Coca-Cola products at Stater Bros., including branded soft drinks, vitaminwater, vitaminwater zero, smartwater, Powerade ION4, Powerade Zero, Fuze, Dasani, Gold Peak products, Minute Maid products, Simply juices and Honest Tea products. The Coca-Cola products promotion runs through May 8.

This is the fourth year that Coca-Cola and Stater Bros. have initiated an environmental stewardship program for parks. The previous campaigns combined raised nearly $2 million that was used to plant one million trees in parks damaged by wildfires, support beach cleanup and dune restoration at popular state beaches and provide trail maintenance at Southern California state parks.

“Protecting and preserving our local California state parks is a priority for the Stater Bros. supermarket family,” says Jack H. Brown, Stater Bros. chairman and chief executive officer. “We are proud to be a part of a program that helps safeguard Southern California’s natural assets for local residents and future generations.”

“We are grateful for our partners at Stater Bros. and Coca-Cola for supporting Southern California state parks,” said Ruth Coleman, director of California state parks. “These funds provide critical dollars toward enhancing visitor experiences during challenging budget times.”

All monies raised during the campaign will be donated to the California State Park Foundation. Educational facts, Preserve Our Parks program details and the ability to share the campaign via social media platforms are available on the Preserve Our Parks website and the Facebook cause page.

Preserve Our Parks directly benefits iconic Southern California state parks and that partial list includes: Malibu Creek State Park and Topanga State Park in Los Angeles County; Huntington Beach, San Clemente and Crystal Cove state parks in Orange County; Anza-Borrego, Cuyamaca Rancho and Carlsbad state parks in San Diego County; Silverwood Lake and Chino Hills in San Bernardino County; and Lake Perris and Mount San Jacinto in Riverside County.
