Commonwealth Journal

— IGA of Somerset will join the American Cancer Society to help ‘bag’ cancer during its Grocers Fight Cancer Day on Wednesday, Oct. 5, and will donate a percentage of the sales for the day to the American Cancer Society.

“IGA of Somerset is committed to providing ongoing support of the American Cancer Society’s efforts through events like Grocers Fight Cancer,” said Brooke Cary, community representative for the American Cancer Society. “We encourage customers to help make this event a success.”

Customers can also help by donating $1 to the American Cancer Society and having a paper pink ribbon decorate the windows in the IGA store. The pink ribbons commemorate October as national breast cancer awareness month.

The money raised during Grocers Fight Cancer goes to support the American Cancer Society’s goals of preventing cancer, saving lives and assisting cancer patients in need.

The American Cancer Society is the nationwide, community-based, voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by preventing cancer, saving lives and diminishing suffering from cancer through research, education, advocacy and service.
