Kwik Fill Launches Annual MDA Shamrocks Campaign

Kwik Fill’s 295 locations in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio will be raising money to help children and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases through March 31 for the annual MDA Shamrocks campaign to benefit the mission of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Money raised will be spent accelerating research, advancing care, and advocating for the support of families.

“Kwik Fill has been proud to participate in the MDA Shamrocks campaign. The funds raised are critical for research and care for people who live with neuromuscular diseases, and we are honored to be a part of this important mission with the Muscular Dystrophy Association,” said Beth Caldwell, Kwik Fill retail marketing managing director.

Kwik Fill is adding an iconic paper Shamrock (pinup) to their purchase at check out for just $1, $5 or a larger contribution. Kwik Fill joins thousands of other retail locations throughout the country in this year’s campaign — the nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day-themed fundraiser. MDA Shamrocks will be displayed in Kwik Fill stores across New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio visually declaring support for the cause.

The MDA Shamrocks campaign benefits the MDA Care Center across New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. Funds raised also make MDA Summer Camp possible for area children. This summer program is an opportunity for children to learn vital life skills, make life-long friendships, and experience independence, at no cost to their families at Recreation Unlimited MDA Summer Camp in Ohio and Variety Club Camp in Pennsylvania.

“We are 42 years deep into partnerships with MDA Shamrocks retailers and have already raised over $346 million dollars, which has funded extraordinary breakthroughs in research, care, and supported transformational experiences for kids at MDA Summer Camp,” said Morgan Roth, chief marketing officer of the MDA. “We are truly in the era of treatments for rare neuromuscular diseases thanks to support from the MDA Shamrocks fundraising campaign from our longstanding retail partners. We are grateful to the employees who embrace the program every year, and the customers who continue to demonstrate that they are here for their neighbors living with rare neuromuscular diseases across the country.”
