Cooke’s, Super Saver and their customers came together for an important cause, raising $11,882 in Shamrocks Against Dystrophy donations.
During the month of March, the stores sold green and gold shamrocks to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Funds raised by Cooke’s and Super Saver stores help local individuals and families affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases.
“MDA is very honored to have the support of such a fantastic company, as well as the generosity of their area citizens, in the fight to find cures for muscule disease,” said Holly Carroll, MDA executive director.
MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
