Stop & Shop has donated more than $1.7 million for the American Cancer Society to support the fight against breast cancer. Throughout the month of October, 100% of customer donations at checkout went to the American Cancer Society to support breast cancer research, greater access to quality care and patient support services. For more than a decade, Stop & Shop has been committed to supporting the American Cancer Society’s mission, raising more than $6.3 million since the partnership began, and earning the title of largest point of sale retail partner via their annual register campaign.
To celebrate, Stop & Shop and The American Cancer Society today came together at the Hope Lodge Center for a special check presentation. The American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge communities provide a free place to stay during treatment.
“Our continued work with the American Cancer Society is so important to our associates, customers, and communities, and we are proud to continue our partnership to fund research, support patients, and spread the word about prevention,” said Karen Mitchell, Chief Marketing Officer for Stop & Shop. “We are particularly thankful to our customers and our associates for their ongoing commitment to help save lives and fund the future of breast cancer research & care.”
Stop & Shop also supported the American Cancer Society outside its stores by sponsoring the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer movement.
“For over a decade, Stop & Shop has been a remarkable partner in supporting the American Cancer Society’s vision to end cancer as we know it, for everyone,” said Anthony Marino, Executive Vice President of the American Cancer Society. “Their passionate associates & generous customers continue to make a difference in helping the American Cancer Society be there for people in every community affected by breast cancer, whether they’re currently dealing with a diagnosis, may face one in the future, or will avoid it altogether because of education and risk reduction.”
