Stater Bros. Markets Presents $1,143,000 Check to Muscular Dystrophy Association

Since 1986, Stater Bros. has raised over $6.1 Million for MDA

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Stater Bros. Markets is pleased to announce that a check for $1,143,000 was presented to the MDA during the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon over the recent Labor Day weekend. Stater Bros. has raised funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Association for 23 consecutive years.


Funds from this campaign will be used to send 1,000 children with Muscular Dystrophy to camp. Additional funds will be used to support vital research for neuromuscular disease, medical equipment, free support groups, clinics and funding wheelchairs for those who suffer from neuromuscular disease.

All 165 Stater Bros. Supermarkets participated in the MDA Aisles of Smiles for Jerry's Kids Campaign during the month of August. This campaign provided funds to MDA through the sale of participating products as well as through the sale of $1 and $5 Mobiles at the time of checkout. In addition, Stater Bros. has spearheaded the MDA Grocery Industry Alliance Program for the past three years. Stater Bros., its customers, and employees all helped in this fund raising effort.

To further assist, Stater Bros. also hosted an event this year for the families of the children who were going off to MDA Summer Camp.

"The Stater Bros. 'Family' of Employees is very pleased with the outcome of the MDA campaign," stated Jack H. Brown, Stater Bros. Chairman and CEO. "This year's fund raising efforts produced the largest amount ever raised by the Stater Bros. 'Family', and we are extremely proud to be able to assist the MDA in helping local families in the communities we are privileged to serve."
