Mattews, N.C. (PRWEB) March 01, 2016
During the month of March, Harris Teeter will host an in-store donation card campaign to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Cashiers in each Harris Teeter store will ask shoppers and associates to purchase a $1, $3, and $5 “Be Their Strength” donation card. The sales of the donation cards will directly benefit MDA in raising funds to continue its mission of finding treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases, including ALS and other related life-threatening diseases.
Thanks to generous contributions from Harris Teeter customers and associates in the 2014 donation card campaign, the company donated over $570,000 to MDA.
“Each donation card sold is a symbol of strength, independence and life for kids and adults with life-threatening diseases who count on MDA to find answers and provide support,” said Leanne Greco, MDA Divisional Director. “Thanks to the generosity of Harris Teeter associates and shoppers, we can help MDA invest in lifesaving research and support programs for these individuals so they can live the life they’ve always imagined and experience the world without any limits.”
Shoppers and associates can donate both in-store and through Harris Teeter’s online shopping tool, expresslane, now through March 31, 2016.
