Township Stop & Shop Customers Donate $3,700 To American Cancer Society

A fundraising drive by the township Stop & Shop store to benefit the American Cancer Society netted more than $3,000, the company said.

The store raised $3,735 in a two-week period in October through the sale of pink ribbons. The money raised will go toward the ACS’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.

Shop & Stop stores across the metro New York region raised a total of $276,800, the company said.

“Together, Stop & Shop and the American Cancer Society are committed to finishing the fight against breast cancer,” Cindy Carrasquilla, Community Relations Manager for Stop & Shop, said in a press release. “By joining with the American Cancer Society, Stop & Shop and its customers are supporting those in our community who are battling the disease, remembering those we’ve lost, and investing in the most effective cancer-fighting organization in the nation. Stop & Shop, our customers and our associates are proud to help the American Cancer Society achieve their vision of a world without breast cancer.”

The Pink Ribbon sales will enable the American Cancer Society to fund groundbreaking breast cancer research, provide free, comprehensive information and support, and help people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it’s most treatable.

The Making Strides program is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the nation, uniting nearly 300 communities to celebrate breast cancer survivors, pay tribute to loved ones lost, and raise funds to end breast cancer.
