NORTH CAROLINA -- The Red Apple Markets convenience store chain, a 42-store chain serving eastern N.C. and southern Virginia, recently participated in an "Apples Against Dystrophy" program to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association by selling Red Apple Mobiles, reported the Outer Banks (N.C.) Sentinel.
For a $1 donation, customers purchased a Red Apple and signed their name on the front of the Apples, which were then used to decorate the stores.
This annual event for Red Apple Markets raised $3,800, and the funds will enable MDA to continue to provide programs and services to families throughout Northeastern North Carolina living with any one of the 43 neuromuscular diseases, the report stated.
The Muscular Dystrophy Association is a non- profit health agency that receives no government funding, United Way Funds, or fees from those we serve. The Association relies solely on private contributors for support.
