ALBUQUERQUE . — Albertsons Market is set to kick-off the “Aisles of Smiles” campaign, a program to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and its mission of fighting neuromuscular disease.

The kick-off will take place on Thursday, Sept. 1 at 10:30 a.m. at Albertsons Market (10131 Coors Bypass NW).

Throughout the campaign, guests of Albertsons Market and Market Street will be able to buy qualifying products throughout the store with a portion of the sale being contributed to MDA. From Sept. 1 through 14, guests will also be able to donate any dollar amount to MDA through a donate-at-the-register campaign.

The MDA was started in 1950 by a group of people looking to better the lives of those who deal with neuromuscular conditions. To this day, the organization continues to pursue the promise to free families from the life-threatening effects of muscular dystrophy and other muscle-debilitating diseases.

The campaign kick-off event will consist of brief comments followed by a ceremonial first donation.
