Albertsons is joining Acosta Marketing and manufacturers to again collaborate in the fight against neuromuscular disease through Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) 17th annual Aisles of Smiles campaign.

Available now through Sept. 4, guests can purchase products marked with special “Aisles of Smiles” tags, and a portion of the proceeds will support MDA’s research to find treatments and cures for muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular diseases. In addition, guests can also support MDA with a monetary donation by purchasing a $1 or $5 scan tag at checkout.

"Albertsons is committed to the health and wellness in our communities, and the Aisles of Smiles campaign allows our guests the opportunity to help families living with muscular dystrophy through their everyday purchases,” said Shelby Crews, senior community relations manager for The United Family. “After seeing the success of the Aisles of Smiles campaign from previous years, we’re eager to continue giving to those in need again this year.”

The Muscular Dystrophy Association is the world’s leading nonprofit health agency dedicated to saving and improving the lives of anyone with muscle disease, including muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neuromuscular diseases. It does so by funding worldwide research to find treatments and cures; by providing comprehensive health care services and support to MDA families nationwide; and by rallying communities to fight back through advocacy, fundraising and local engagement.
