Harris Teeter donates $549,488 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA)

  • Company Thanks Generous Associates and Shoppers for their Support

Matthews, N.C., 2016-Apr-27 — /EPR Retail News/ — Today (April 22, 2016), Harris Teeter is donating $549,488 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) to help MDA continue its mission of finding treatments and cures for neuromuscular diseases, including ALS and other related life-threatening diseases. The donation was made possible thanks to generous contributions from valued Harris Teeter associates and shoppers.

Harris Teeter hosted the “Be Their Strength” donation card campaign in March, during which time Harris Teeter associates and shoppers were invited to make a $1, $3 and $5 donation to MDA at checkout. MDA representatives visited stores throughout the campaign, sharing information about MDA and capturing images of Harris Teeter associates and customers ‘being the strength’ for the organization.

“Through these donations, Harris Teeter associates and shoppers continue to show us how important MDA is to them,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter.  “We are proud to strengthen our commitment in the fight against neuromuscular disease with this donation.”

The money raised during Harris Teeter’s donation card campaign will help MDA provide comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy, and education for individuals and families affected by these diseases.  This includes MDA Summer Camps for children ages 6-17, MDA-funded clinics, local support groups and educational seminars, and assistance with equipment repairs.

“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,” said MDA Divisional Director Leanne Greco. “Every dollar makes a difference and we are so thankful for these contributions.”
