Shop for the Cure!

Price Chopper and many of our Trade Partners have made an effort to support the fight against breast cancer.  This effort is visible in packaging of so many products in our stores.  Check out the items and trade partners below and how they are showing their support during Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Eggland’s Best supports Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest breast cancer advocacy organization and the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer.  Through November 15th, Eggland’s Best will feature the signature “EB” stamp with the Susan G. Komen Running Ribbon on all varieties of farm eggs.  They will also be donating $50,000 to support Susan G. Komen in their pledge to end breast cancer forever.  Learn more at http://www.egglandsbest.com/news/egglands-goes-pink.aspx.

General Mills brands are turning pink this month, thanks to Pink Together, a multi-faceted campaign that has added $8 million to the company’s support of the breast cancer cause since 2007. Launched four years ago, PinkTogether.com is an emotionally charged site that has nearly 700,000 members who have been touched by breast cancer. The online community offers newly diagnosed, survivors, friends, caregivers and supporters the opportunities to connect, find support, share stories and offer each other strength and hope.
