Stop & Shop Joins American Cancer Society For Campaign

Quincy, Massachusetts-based Stop & Shop is joining the American Cancer Society’s movement to celebrate breast cancer survivors with a donation campaign.

Throughout October, all stores will offer shoppers the option of donating $1, $3 or $5 at checkout or rounding up their total at self-checkout, with 100 percent of the donation going to the American Cancer Society.

The annual campaign has become personal to Stop & Shop, and this year, its in-store campaign signage features employees sharing their breast cancer journeys – some facing a personal diagnosis and others having their families impacted by the disease. Employees Christine Savoie, Linda Perrone and Marsheila Spruiell have stepped forward to share their journey to help inspire hope for those facing their own breast cancer diagnosis.

“Stop & Shop is committed to supporting the American Cancer Society and the important work it does in the fight against breast cancer,” said Jennifer Brogan, director of external communications and community relations for Stop & Shop. “We’re especially proud of our courageous associates who are serving as the faces of this year’s campaign to share the importance of giving – and what it means for them personally.”

Stop & Shop will also sponsor the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” movement in Jones Beach, New York; Riverhead, New York; Point Pleasant, New Jersey; Fairfield County, Connecticut; Providence, Rhode Island; Boston, Massachusetts; and Bronx, New York.

“For over a decade, Stop & Shop has been a tremendous partner in supporting the American Cancer Society’s work to end cancer as we know it,” said Anthony Marino, executive vice president of the American Cancer Society.

“In 2021, the American Cancer Society responded to 250,000 calls and chats from people looking for information and support. The American Cancer Society was there for those people…so no one has to face a cancer journey alone. It is thanks to partners like Stop & Shop, their passionate associates, and their generous customers, that we are able to give hope to those who need it most.”

Last year, Stop & Shop and its customers raised $1.65 million which supports the American Cancer Society mission through investments in breast cancer research, ensuring greater access to quality care, influencing public policy and providing patient support.
