Nelson Safeway teams up with Muscular Dystrophy Canada

The campaign will raises funds and awareness for neuromuscular disorders.

Muscular Dystrophy Canada ambassador Jonathan White (third from left) and the staff Nelson Safeway are chipping in for the 2015 Help Feed Ability campaign, which raises funds and awareness for Muscular Dystrophy Canada and Easter Seals Canada. Every dollar raised will go to fund important efforts to ensure all Canadians, regardless of physical ability, benefit from better nutrition and greater food literacy. The campaign runs through June 28. Safeway customers are invited to donate $2 and receive five bonus Air Miles Reward Miles or $3 to receive ten bonus Air Miles Reward Miles. White benefitted from a Safeway grant that allowed him to take part in Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s Empowerment in Action conference last August, which brought people with neuromuscular disorders from all over Canada to learn skills to help enjoy a better quality of life.
