Albertson's in Midland is celebrating their 100-year anniversary by giving away $100,000 away to local charities.

Albertsons kicked off the giveaway on Monday by donating a check worth $1,000 to a local charity named Rays of Hope.

Albertson's will continue to distribute their donations by giving a $1,000 check to different local charities for the next 100 days.

The store had a committee review list of local charities and they picked out the ones that would reach the most amount of people, focusing on children and families.

"That's one of the things we try to focus on how can we touch the most. If we got $100,000 to give away, how can we touch as many people as possible?" said John Jameson, Regional Vice President.

Albertsons hope to reach more charities well into September.
