Sharon Boddie, 2021 Neal Poppin Award Winner

A highlight of the evening was the presentation of our 2021 Neal Poppin Award to Sharon Boddie. Sharon loves working at Safeway and has been a dedicated employee throughout the pandemic. Her friendly demeanor, positive attitude, and hard work have helped her excel in the workplace. She was recently promoted to a manager and now runs the “Drive-up and Go” program. She is a role model to us all and we are so proud to honor her with this year’s Neal Poppin Award. Watch the video below to learn more about Sharon.

Holly Robinson Peete, Guest Speaker!

Holly Robinson Peete
Actress, Author & Humanitarian

From her role on 21 Jump Street to her current family docu-series For Peete’s Sake, Holly Robinson Peete has consistently used her celebrity status as a platform to advocate for issues dear to her heart. Following her father’s battle with Parkinson’s disease, she and husband Rodney Peete – a former NFL quarterback – formed the HollyRod Foundation. In 2005, they extended the Foundation’s mission to provide support and resources to those affected by autism when their eldest son was diagnosed with the condition. Today, Robinson Peete is arguably one of the most sought after and prolific autism advocates in the US.
