GREENVILLE, S.C. — Bi-Lo stores on Thursday joined the fight against the estimated 232,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed this year with the launch of Bi-Lo’s Community Donation Program benefitting Susan G. Komen in all of its stores. From now through Oct. 22, Bi-Lo encourages customers to donate at any store register.
“Bi-Lo recognizes the important role that we and our loyal customers can play in making better, stronger communities for everyone,” stated Melissa Adams, Bi-Lo Holdings manager of charitable giving. “The partnership with Komen affords us the opportunity to support families in our communities who have been affected by breast cancer, as well as the opportunity to educate and raise awareness of this prevalent disease that affects so many of our neighbors.”
“We are pleased to again have the support of BI-LO and BI-LO customers this fall" added Chandini Portteus, chief mission officer at Komen. "These funds will have a direct impact in the lives of women and men facing breast cancer — our friends, family and neighbors — throughout the southeastern United States."
