Arizona Safeway Stores 'Make a Difference' at the Register for MDA

Phoenix (PRWEB) August 20, 2013

Safeway grocery stores throughout Arizona are fighting back against muscle disease this summer during the annual register fundraising campaign to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

From now through Sept. 2, Safeway locations in Arizona will participate in the nationwide campaign, giving customers the opportunity to contribute at the register to help support local MDA families affected by muscle disease.

"We’re grateful to have the support of a company like Safeway that is committed to serving the Arizona community," said Executive Director Sarah Levin. "The in-store register fundraising campaign is a simple and practical way to strengthen our neighborhoods, and will help us provide MDA families with the care and services they need to fight back against muscle disease."

Children and adults served by MDA will benefit directly from every register donation made at Safeway locations in Arizona.

Donations will contribute to MDA’s worldwide research program, its national network of 200 medical clinics, and will help send local children to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp at Whispering Hope Ranch in Payson, Ariz.

MDA and Safeway began a partnership in 1989 when California Vons and Safeway stores teamed up with the organization to raise funds through the Aisles of Smiles campaign to benefit local families affected by muscle disease. In 2004, Safeway became an MDA national partner to help support MDA’s lifesaving programs. Over the years, Safeway has raised more than $68.7 million to help send kids to weeklong summer camps at no cost to their families, and provide vital services and resources to those affected by muscular dystrophy and related muscle diseases.
