Stores across the Southwest to help MDA families with the sale of Make a Muscle Mobiles.

Phoenix (PRWEB) February 28, 2014

Albertsons supermarkets across the Southwest will team up with the Muscular Dystrophy Association this March to raise over $200,000 through the 2014 pin-up mobile campaign.

Throughout the month of March, Albertsons stores throughout New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, El Paso, Texas and Durango, Colo. will participate in the in-store pin-up mobile campaign that offers customers the opportunity to donate to their local community to help families affected by muscle disease.

"We want to encourage people in in the community to give back to the families we serve throughout the Southwest," said MDA Associate Executive Director Sarah Levin. "By supporting the Albertsons ‘Make A Muscle’ mobile program, people can make an immediate difference by helping to raise awareness and funds that can help save the lives of children and adults fighting muscle disease."

Albertsons Southwest Division has supported MDA for more than 25 years and has raised more than $2 million through special fundraising events and campaigns to raise vital funds for MDA's programs of research and health care services, including sending children affected by muscular dystrophy and related diseases to a weeklong, barrier-free MDA summer camp
