Sam’s Club Fundraiser to Benefit Society

January 17, 2012

Last winter, Sam’s Club employees raised nearly $1.2 million through grassroots fundraising efforts including hot chocolate and chili sales to benefit people living with MS. Inspired to exceed last year’s results and committed to giving back to the communities they serve, Sam’s Club has once again rallied employees to fundraise outside club locations and through internal employee initiatives, in addition to committing employee volunteer service hours to Society chapters across the United States.

Support Sam’s Club in their efforts to raise critical funds for MS by donating at club locations February 1, 2012 through March 3, 2012. Please don’t forget to share this information with friends and family and extend your appreciation to Sam’s Club employees for their commitment to achieving a world free of MS.

Funds raised through the Sam’s Club initiative will be used by local markets to help people living with MS move their lives forward.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
