United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos store locations together raised almost $18,000 for the fight against breast cancer during the company’s annual “Who Do You Pink For?” promotion. The funds raised will be donated to local chapters of the American Cancer Society (ACS).
“At United, we are always motivated to help raise awareness and funds together with our partners and guests for a great cause,” says Shelby Crews, community relations manager for United Supermarkets, LLC. “We thank our guests who helped us raise more than three times the amount we raised last year toward the fight against breast cancer.”
During October, Guests helped raise money for breast cancer research and awareness by purchasing pink reusable bags for $1.99 each, with $1 from each sale also going to ACS. Also during the month, Guests indicated who they “are pink for” by sharing their breast cancer story on the company’s Facebook pages. United Supermarkets, LLC, committed to making a $5 donation for each story toward breast cancer research and awareness.
In addition, as guests purchased specially marked products throughout the store, grocery partners agreed to donate a percentage of those sales to support the cause.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. For nearly 100 years, the ACS has worked relentlessly to save lives and create a world with less cancer.
