Cliff’s Raises $37,758.71 for the MDA of Central New York

UTICA NY, March 24th, 2023 – Cliff’s Local Market is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of its Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) campaign, which ran from February 1st to March 17th. With great pride, Cliff’s Local Market has exceeded its fundraising goal of $35,000, thanks to the hard work and dedication of its staff, as well as the generous donations from the public. The total amount of donations collected throughout the campaign is an impressive $37,758.71.

Throughout the campaign, customers were invited to purchase the iconic paper pin-up for a $1 or $5 contribution at check-out. The pin-ups were then signed and prominently displayed in each store, symbolizing strength, independence, and life for MDA families in the community.

All local funds raised from the campaign will directly benefit area children with Muscular Dystrophy, enabling them to attend MDA summer camp where they will meet campers just like them. The MDA summer camp provides children with Muscular Dystrophy a week of fun, friendship, and independence in an environment specially designed for their unique needs.

Cliff’s Local Market would like to express its sincere gratitude to everyone who supported the MDA campaign. With your generous contributions, we can continue to provide life-changing support and services for those living with Muscular Dystrophy.
