A wonderful partnership with the good people at Albertsons Safeway has grown over the years and Mission of Mercy could not be more excited! In just the past eight months, Albertsons Safeway has awarded MOM more than $100,000 in grants.
In partnership with their Get the Facts, Don’t Get the Flu campaign, Albertsons Safeway awarded MOM $56,000 in grant funds, which were used to provide free mammograms and patient visits for MOM patients. The partnership also included a 5-week media campaign in October and a two-week campaign again in February on AZ Family (Channel 3 & 5), including a Your Life A-Z segment that emphasized the importance of flu vaccines and highlighted MOM’s work in the community.
Albertsons Safeway also gave MOM a $50,000 grant as part of its Conquer Cancer campaign. The funds were used to support a 4-week media campaign on AZ Family and to support patient visits at MOM clinics.
Over the years, Albertsons Safeway has also placed pharmacy residents at MOM clinics and has strived to find ways to ensure that all of our Arizona neighbors have access to quality healthcare. Additionally, Albertsons Safeway has administered flu shots on site at a MOM clinic each year for the past three years.
Thank you to Albertsons Safeway for helping to make Maricopa County healthier!
