Karns customers, staff raise $30,000 for MDA

Eight Karns Quality Foods stores, including the one in Middletown, raised a total of $30,673 during a St. Patrick’s Day themed fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

Customers and employees donated $1 or more at the grocery store chain’s checkout counters during the MDA Shamrocks between Feb. 17 and March 17 to fund research, support groups and clinics like the MDA Care Center at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Money raised also will help send more than 20 local kids to an MDA summer camp at Happiness is Camping, Hardwick, N.J., at no cost to their families.

“We can’t thank Karns enough for what they do to support our local families,’’ said Joe Alfano, executive director of MDA.

The eight local Karns locations averaged $3,834 per location, the highest average in the 34 years that the chain has held the fundraiser. Customers and employees who donated signed their name on green shamrock symbols that were displayed in the stores.

“We’re grateful to everyone who participated and we’re honored to do our part in support of MDA’s mission to help central Pennsylvania families affected by these muscle-debilitating diseases live longer and grow stronger,” said Scott Karns, CEO of Karns Quality Foods.
