McCaffrey’s Food Markets Announces Its Annual Fights Cancer Day on October 19, 2016

Two New Locations Added – Doylestown and Blue Bell, PA

Langhorne, PA, [2016] – –

Every year, McCaffrey’s Food Markets holds a community-giving day when five percent of that day’s net sales are donated to St. Mary Regional Cancer Center in Newtown, PA (from their PA Stores) and the American Cancer Society (from their NJ Stores). This year’s date is set for Wednesday, October 19, 2016.

With the addition of its two, newest Markets – Simply Fresh by McCaffrey’s in Doylestown and Blue Bell McCaffrey’s – they have added two more beneficiaries: Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute and Abington-Jefferson Health’s Asplundh Cancer Pavilion. With four locations now in Pennsylvania and two locations in New Jersey, locally owned McCaffrey’s Food Markets believes that supporting the people and communities it serves is a central part of their value and mission.

In honor of the Day, the store offers in-store specials, holds a raffle and has a variety of entertainment, like music, balloon art and face painting. Local health care professionals volunteer during the day as well – selling raffle tickets, bagging groceries and publicizing their services.

“Doylestown Health’s Cancer Institute provides high-quality oncology care and enables our patients and their families to stay close to home,” said Jim Brexler, President and CEO of Doylestown Health. “We are a non-profit health system and therefore especially appreciate the support of our caring community and the generosity of organizations like McCaffrey’s Food Markets.”

“This type of support from local businesses like McCaffrey’s is very important to us. Our patients, employees and physicians appreciate knowing that the community supports important initiatives like the new Asplundh Cancer Pavilion,” adds Jill Kyle, senior vice president, Regional Advancement, Jefferson Health.

The Grocer Fights Cancer Day has been held annually since 1992, when McCaffrey’s President Jim McCaffrey III began the event after his sister was diagnosed with cancer. Since its inception, it has raised nearly $500,000 to fight cancer.

“We delight in donating to worthy causes and organizations,” says Mr. McCaffrey. “It makes it that much more special when the donation meets the needs of the community members from the locations in which we serve.”
