ANKENY, Iowa — More than 1,880 Casey’s General Store Inc. convenience stores are raising money to help the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) save and improve the lives of kids fighting muscular dystrophy and related life-threatening diseases that limit muscle strength and mobility by participating in the MDA Summer Camp Mobile Program.
Through September 7, Casey’s General Store associates will sell $1 and $5 pin-up mobiles that offer customers the opportunity to help send local children affected by neuromuscular diseases to MDA summer camp at more than 14 different camps in the Casey’s General Store service area—all at no cost to their families.
“MDA summer camp is often considered ‘the best week of the year’ for our kids, and it wouldn’t be possible without support from partners like Casey’s General Store and its generous customers and employees,” said MDA director of business development Danielle Etter.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of MDA’s summer camp program, and is the ninth year Casey’s General Store has supported MDA through its mobile fundraising programs, raising more than $4.35 million.
Dollars raised from the mobile program help MDA in the search for cutting-edge treatments and cures and support MDA’s life-enhancing programs such as support groups and clinics.
Casey’s General Stores, based in Ankeny, Iowa, operates more than 1,850 convenience stores in 14 states throughout the Midwest.
