Community Involvement and Charitable Giving
Like Customer Service,
Community Service is a Priority at Dierbergs
Our commitment to lending a helping hand reflects the Dierberg family’s long-held belief in giving back to friends and neighbors in our communities. Through contributions and partnerships, Dierbergs makes community benefit as much a priority as serving our customers.
Our Charitable Giving Priorities:
- Hunger Relief: providing food to organizations focused
on those in need
- Neighborhood organizations: offering support for community enrichment programs in the communities we serve. If your event or organization, such as a school, or a religious or neighborhood agency, serves only that store community, your written request should be directed to the Store Director at your local Dierbergs.
