2023 MDA Campaign Begins

UTICA, NY, February 1st, 2023 — All Cliff’s Local Market and Clifford Fuel locations throughout Central New York will be raising funds to empower the lives of children and adults living with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases from February 1st through March 17th for the annual MDA Shamrocks campaign to benefit the mission of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). After the campaign, funds raised will go towards accelerating research, advancing care, and advocating for the support of families impacted by muscular dystrophy. 


Cliff’s Local Market is making available the iconic paper Shamrock (pinup) to purchase at check out for just $1, $5, or any larger contribution. Cliff’s Local Market 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 all the Cliff’s Local Market stores, visually affirming community support for the cause. 


Jim Clifford, Owner, and President of Clifford Fuel Company Inc. and Cliff’s Local Market expressed his excitement for this year’s fundraising event. “The Clifford team is thrilled to join forces with the MDA charity in this fundraising effort. The impact this organization makes in the lives of those with muscular dystrophy is truly incredible, and we are honored to be a part of supporting their work.”

From now until March 17th, you can make a difference by donating at the register at any of our Cliff’s locations. Your contribution, no matter how small, can make a big impact and bring us closer to reaching our goal.
