SHOP 'n SAVE'S Life-saving Funds Advance Care, Provide Summer Programs and Accelerate Research for MDA Families

PITTSBURGH - May 9, 2023 - SHOP 'n SAVE, the independently owned and operated grocery chain with more than 80 stores in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, New York and West Virginia, is proud to announce that it has raised over $2.5 million for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) in its 40+ year partnership.

In 2023, more than 75 SHOP 'n SAVE locations across Pennsylvania partnered with customers to raise over $47,000 to empower the lives of children and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases for the annual MDA Shamrocks campaign to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

SHOP 'n SAVE continues to engage employees and customers in partnership with MDA for the iconic Shamrocks campaign. We are so grateful for their generous in-store donations and support for local families living with neuromuscular diseases," said Katherine Shivers, MDA Account Manager. "We're incredibly thankful for everyone who participated and the continued support from SHOP 'n SAVE."

The MDA Shamrocks pinup program has been running for over 40 years and is one of the nation's largest St. Patrick's Day fundraisers. Each year, the program invites customers to purchase paper shamrocks at participating retailers benefiting MDA Care Centers and Clinics and accelerates research which has brought 18 FDA approved treatments to market since 2015. Funds raised also make MDA Summer Camp possible for area children. The summer program is an opportunity for children to learn vital life skills, make life-long friendships and experience independence at no cost to their families. The kids can choose to apply to either an in-person or virtual program.

"We are thrilled to have reached this significant milestone in our fundraising efforts and are grateful for our customers' and employees' continued support and passion in supporting the MDA," said Don Fabian, Senior Merchandiser for the SHOP 'n SAVE group. "The impact this campaign makes in the community is incredible, and we are honored to support their work."
