Ultra Foods customers donate funds to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

CHICAGO — Jan. 19, 2017 — Ultra Foods, in partnership with the nonprofit organization Making Change®, presented a check for more than $13,000 to the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer today.

The funds were raised in October 2016 during the ‘Because Every Life Matters’ breast cancer awareness point-of-purchase fundraiser in Ultra Foods stores across Chicago.

“We are grateful to the many customers that donated and showed support for those affected by breast cancer,”  said Chris Bengtson, vice president, public relations and community affairs, Ultra Foods. “We are certain that the funds raised during the ‘Because Every Life Matters’ campaign will postively impact those battling the disease.”

The campaign featured pink boards stocked with $1, $3 and $5 donation coupons at checkout stands at Strack and Van Til’s Riverfront Plaza location and all 11 Chicagoland Ultra Foods stores. Customers donated by selecting a coupon in the desired denomination and handing it to the cashier to be scanned. The 100 percent tax-deductible donation appeared on their final bill.
