On August 22, 2016, Albertsons and Tom Thumb stores presented a check for $417,953.90 to the Dallas Police Department in an Appreciation Night. This event was in honor of the five fallen officers from the attacks downtown on July 7, 2016. Just days after the attack on Dallas Police Officers, Albertsons and Tom Thumb started a collection of donations from customers. In a mere two weeks and two days, they were able to achieve this generous donation. The event was held at the Jack Evans Dallas Police Headquarters, where Albertsons and Tom Thumb provided dinner to all attendees.
The Dallas Police Department would like to thank the President of Albertsons and Tom Thumb, Dennis Bassler, and his staff. We would also like to thank all the representatives from every major sports team in Dallas who were in attendance as well as the Master of Ceremonies, Chris Arnold. We truly appreciate your support!
