October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the American Cancer Society (ACS), the country’s leading cancer-fighting organisation, and grocery store chain Jewel-Osco are teaming up to raise funds for initiatives, studies, and services that will enhance the quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families.
Customers will have the chance to donate at the register at any Jewel-Osco outlet from October 1 through October 15 to help the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving work.
“Thanks to dedicated partners like Jewel-Osco, the American Cancer Society can continue our work in the fight against breast cancer. Dollars raised help the American Cancer Society fund innovative breast cancer research; provide education and guidance to help people reduce their risk; and offer comprehensive patient support to those who need it most”
Peter Steele, Vice President, Illinois of the American Cancer Society
“The work of the American Cancer Society is close to our hearts as it benefits members of our community who are impacted by cancer”, “It is immensely rewarding to know that the dollars raised through this fundraiser, made possible through the generosity of our customers and dedication of our employees, will fund life-saving cancer research, support, prevention, and resources.”
Mike Withers, President of Jewel-Osco
