How Your Shopping Routine Can Support Finding a Breast Cancer Cure

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, the breast-cancer-specific arm of the American Cancer Society, is backed by hundreds of partners who aim to make supporting the cause as easy as possible for consumers. A premier example of these partners is New England’s very own Stop & Shop, a consistent supporter of Making Strides which, through the generosity and engagement of communities like ours here in Boston, brings in an average of $1.6 million to ACS each October.

Simply by making Stop & Shop your grocery destination this month and tacking a donation of any amount onto your receipt, you can contribute to programs that not only advance research into stopping breast cancer, but also provide support to patients currently navigating the disease. And while you’re in the store, keep an eye out for signage highlighting patients and survivors in your local community.

Supporting Making Strides while shopping does not stop at the grocery store. Each October, ACS features unique product partnerships that consumers can purchase to support their cause. These products include pink stuffed animals specially created by Vermont Teddy Bear, special jewelry collections, and more. Each partnership between ACS and a brand is tailored and distinct, so you can put your dollars specifically into different ACS programs, from breast cancer research to Hope Lodge or other cancer support programs.
