Hometown Grocer, Local Food Companies Team up to Support Pediatric Patients, Encourage 'Green' Lifestyle
Date:4/8/2009

Bashas', Food City & AJ's grocery stores sell limited-edition, reusable grocery totes to benefit Phoenix Children's Hospital

PHOENIX, April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Dodge the age-old question of "paper or plastic" by choosing to reuse. It will help preserve Arizona and support Phoenix Children's Hospital.

Bashas', Food City and AJ's grocery stores have teamed up with Hickman's Eggs, Holsum Bakery and Shamrock Farms on a charitable "green" mission this spring. The team of local companies will introduce a bright green reusable shopping tote, featuring "Flower Hand" artwork from Adam Isaiah Garay, a 7-year-old Phoenix Children's Hospital patient.

"I drew this picture because we all need our hands to do good and our part to clean our world," said Adam. "And when it's all clean, then we can grow beautiful trees and flowers." Adam was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia in 2006. Since then, he has endured chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. When Adam has to stay in the hospital, he keeps busy by drawing.

Arizona residents can find the special reusable tote at Bashas', Food City and AJ's stores statewide starting April 7. This "must-have" spring accessory will be easy on the environment and customers' pocketbooks. Offered at the irresistible price of $1.49, a limited supply of totes will be on sale in 144 stores until supplies last. One hundred percent of tote sales will go directly to Phoenix Children's Hospital's Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, the largest provider of hematology and oncology care for children in Arizona and the entire western region. Donations will help little patients like Adam.

"The funds raised from our community through a program like this will dramatically impact the survival rates for children with cancer," said Dr. Jessica Boklan, pediatric oncologist at the Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders at Phoenix Children's Hospi
