Krist Oil raises $25K for MDA

More than 70 Krist Food Mart locations in the Wisconsin and Upper Michigan area teamed with customers to raise $25,817 to help free kids and adults from the harm of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases that limit strength and mobility during the 36th annual MDA Shamrocks program to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. From Feb. 12 to March 25, Krist Food Mart locations participated in the nation’s largest St. Patrick’s Day fundraising program in which customers and associates purchased an MDA Shamrock at the check out for a $1, $5 or a larger contribution. Each Shamrock was signed by the customer and prominently displayed in each store, symbolizing strength, independence and life for MDA families in the community.
