Quincy, Massachusetts-based Stop & Shop has collected and donated more than $1.6 million for the American Cancer Society to support the fight against breast cancer. Throughout October, customers across the supermarket chain had the option of donating at checkout, with 100 percent of donations going to the American Cancer Society to support breast cancer research and care.

For more than a decade, Stop & Shop stores across New York City, New Jersey and Long Island have supported the American Cancer Society via an annual register campaign. This year, the fundraising efforts spanned all 400-plus stores across Stop & Shop’s five-state footprint.

Also new this year, Stop & Shop associates who have been impacted by breast cancer – either directly or through their families – were featured on signage in-store throughout the campaign to share why they fight for a cure.

“We’re thankful to our customers and our associates for their ongoing commitment to help save lives and fund the future of breast cancer research & care,” said Jennifer Brogan, director of external communications and community relations for Stop & Shop. “This campaign is particularly important to our associates, customers and communities – and we look forward to continuing our partnership with the American Cancer Society to fund research, support patients and spread the word about prevention.”

Stop & Shop also supported the American Cancer Society outside its stores. The company and its associates sponsored and participated in Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks in Jones Beach and Riverhead, New York; Point Pleasant, New Jersey; Fairfield County, Connecticut; and Providence, Rhode Island.

“It is exciting to see the growth of our partnership with Stop & Shop, not just the leadership and associates who supported the campaign, but also the customers who so generously gave at check-out to help fund our mission of fighting cancer,” said Anthony Marino, EVP of the American Cancer Society, Northeast Region. “We are so grateful to all who gave and helped raise these critical funds to support patients in need today and the future of cancer research.”

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately one in eight women will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. For more information about the latest in breast cancer research and how Stop & Shop’s efforts are helping to save lives, click here.
