United Supermarkets Raises Almost $5,500 for Breast Cancer
By Grocery Headquarters Staff
United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos United locations raised nearly $5,500 for the fight against breast cancer during the company’s annual “Who Do You Pink For?” promotion. The funds raised will be shared between the CURE Cancer Foundation of Lubbock and the Komen Greater Amarillo Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. During October, store guests purchased specially marked products and pink reusable bags with a percentage from each sale going to the cause. Also during the month, guests shared their breast cancer stories on Facebook and who they “pink for” by signing in-store posters. “We are so proud of our guests for joining us as we support the fight against breast cancer,” said Shelby Crews, community relations manager for United Supermarkets, LLC, based in Lubbock, Texas. “We are pleased to support the CURE Cancer Foundation and the Komen Greater Amarillo Affiliate with their missions to find a cure for breast cancer.” The CURE Cancer Foundation is committed to funding translational cancer research with the end result being the total eradiation of cancer as a major cause of death in our world. Komen Greater Amarillo Affiliate is part of a network fighting to end breast cancer forever and has invested more than $1 million in community breast cancer programs in the 26 counties of the Texas Panhandle.
