Market Street's parent company, United Supermarkets LLC, and its grocery partners are once again joining the fight against breast cancer. All Market Street stores are asking guests to help raise funds for breast cancer research and awareness through the annual “Who Are You Pink For?” promotion.
Now through Nov. 1, guests can help raise money for breast cancer research and awareness by purchasing specially marked products throughout the store, for which grocery partners have agreed to donate a percentage of the sales to support the cause. Products will be clearly marked with special shelf tags. In addition, all stores will be selling pink reusable bags for $1.99 each, with $1 from each sale also going to the cause.
Throughout October, guests will have the opportunity to indicate who they “are pink for” by sharing their breast cancer story on the company’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/MarketStreetDFW). Market Street will make a $5 donation for each story - up to $10,000 - toward breast cancer research and awareness.
“At Market Street, we are motivated to help raise awareness and funds together with our partners and guests for a great cause,” said Shelby Crews, community relations manager for United Supermarkets, LLC. “I am inspired when reading how our guests have been impacted by breast cancer, because it reminds us who we are working to help and provides a platform for guests to share their stories of courage.”
