Helping Someone with Muscular Dystrophy

LAWRENCE, Mass.—Energy North Group (ENG) announced it raised $101,415 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA), according to a news release.

This is the 18th consecutive year the convenience retailer has fundraised for the nonprofit. Funds raised during the campaign will be used to fund research and care initiatives for those living with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related neuromuscular diseases, as well as to fund children’s time at MDA Summer Camp.

“This is an initiative that brings people together for good,” said Pat O’Connell, executive vice president, Energy North Group. “The MDA makes a tremendous difference in the lives of all those affected by neuromuscular diseases. Thank you to all our Energy North Group, Haffner’s and Tradewinds colleagues and community members who came together to make this donation a reality.”

Energy North raised the funds through the MDA’s St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock fundraiser, which takes place each year in March and is supported by thousands of retailers nationwide. Energy North Group, Haffner’s and Tradewinds gas stations, car washes and convenience stores had MDA Shamrocks available to purchase as direct donations. ENG also donated two dollars for every car wash purchased.

In February, ENG announced the success of its December Toys for Tots drive, which brought in 350 new, unwrapped toys to be donated to the United States Marine Corps Reserve and distributed to local children.
