Snappy’s convenience stores and their customers have raised $4,328 in support of research and services for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Since 2012, Snappy’s has raised $14,282 for local MDA families.
This year, Snappy’s sold MDA Summer Camp-themed mobiles during the first 2 weeks of June at each of their 12 central-Pennsylvania locations. The funds help local members and their families who are living with a form of muscular dystrophy.
The amount raised this year is enough to send six local area children with a muscle-wasting disease to MDA Summer Camp in August. Snappy’s team members are invited to visit the barrier-free Camp Spencer in Fombell, PA for VIP Day August 6.
“Over the years while partnering with the MDA the thing that has impressed me the most would be the outreach and support we receive from our surrounding communities,” said Sean Lay, Vice President of Operations. “Thank you to all of the generous and caring people who helped support the MDA by building awareness and striving to find a cure. “
MDA (mda.org) is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
In addition to funding some 300 research teams worldwide, MDA maintains a national network of 200 medical clinics, and facilitates hundreds of support groups for families affected by neuromuscular diseases.
