“We are grateful to our guests for their generosity during the MDA Shamrock drive,” said Darin Peirce, director of Associated Retail Operations. “We love working with organizations like MDA to make a difference in our communities. We were honored to help more than 20 children attend MDA summer camp this year and hope they had a wonderful time.”

Macey’s, Lin’s, Dan’s, Dick’s Market and Fresh Market participated in the nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day fundraising program in which shoppers purchased MDA Shamrock’s during checkout. Each shamrock was signed by the customer and prominently displayed in each store, symbolizing strength, independence and life for MDA families in the community.
