Wooster, Ohio-based Buehler’s Fresh Foods will be promoting a Life is Why We Give campaign at the registers of all 13 of its stores from Sept. 15 until Oct. 13, asking customers to buy hearts for $1, $3 or $5 in support of the American Heart Association of Stark and Wayne counties.
Customers are encouraged to write their ‘why’ on the hearts, which will be posted at each of the stores to raise awareness. Additionally, wallet cards with the signs of heart attack and stroke will be available for free while supplies last.
“Buehler’s Fresh Foods, a local and employee-owned company, is excited to partner with the American Heart Association,” said Mike Davidson, Buehler’s EVP of retail operations. ”The partnership will educate our associates and customers in regard to the impact that heart disease has on the communities we serve. The American Heart Association is a nationally recognized brand that aligns with Buehler’s Fresh Foods goal to be a first stop for Healthy Living in the communities we serve.”
Davidson also said, “Buehler’s Fresh Foods customers have always participated in our campaigns and support the communities in which they live. We have very caring and giving customers. We look forward to working together.”
