MODESTO, Calif. — Save Mart Supermarkets has committed to raising more than $400,000 this year to increase awareness and promote education about the risks of heart disease to women, the chain said.
Save Mart said it would raise the money in collaboration with the American Heart Association and its Go Red for Women movement.
"Heart disease is the number one killer of women in our country, with one-in-three being diagnosed each year, Save Mart president and COO Steve Junquiero said. "We, as a company and as individuals, are committed to building awareness and raising funds to help protect the heartbeat of our homes."
Save Mart will sponsor television and radio commercials and digital media featuring real-life survivors and heart-healthy recipes, Pinterest sweepstakes, pharmacy health fairs with preventive screenings, shelf tags to identify heart-healthy products, participation in the AHA's Heart Walks and employee events.
