Nugget Market and Food 4 Less partner with Buckeye Education Foundation to raise funds for local schools

Stores will match guests’ donations from

October 20 through November 3

SHINGLE SPRINGS, CA – Nugget Market in El Dorado Hills and Food 4 Less in Cameron Park are teaming with the Buckeye Education Foundation on a matching fund drive in support of schools in the Buckeye Union School District of El Dorado County.

During the two week period of October 20 to November 3, guests may make tax-deductible donations to the Foundation at check stands at either of the two venues, and the stores will match combined donations, up to $2,500.

"Were thrilled to team up with the Buckeye Education Foundation in support of our kids,” said Eric Stille, Owner/CEO of Nugget Markets and Food 4 Less.  “This fund drive is such a great opportunity to partner with our guests and the community to help make a positive impact in our schools."

Foundation President Jon Yoffie called the matching funds drive an important part of the Foundation’s overall fundraising effort.  “Our school families at each of the school campuses are already contributing to the Foundation through our annual campaign drive, “said Yoffie.  ”Additional community support from companies like Nugget and Food 4 Less is vitally needed to maintain quality education and protect our property values in the face of our state’s budget crisis.  We encourage other businesses to find similarly creative ways to assist local schools.”

Formed in 2009, the Buckeye Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit collaboration of parents, educators and community members combating inadequate funding for schools at the state level by providing supplemental funding to the five elementary schools and two middle schools within the Buckeye Union School District in El Dorado County, California.  The district-wide Foundation’s charter is to enhance the education of all K-8 students in the Buckeye Union School District; to fund programs that the District is unable to fund; and to provide funds to assist the District with capital improvements and updated technology.  For more information, and to make a donation, visit
