No Frills Supermarket and Bag n Save are local icons in Omaha, Nebraska. This family owned company has a long tradition of helping those in need; they were thrilled to support the CureSearch Walk again this year.
In 2012, the company raised $10,000 through the sale of CureCards, $1 paper cards that act as a visual reminder of those affected by cancer, at 10 of their local stores. This year, they expanded their support to 31 stores, raising $19,200 to help fund innovative and targeted research aimed at advancing treatments and the search for cures.
The employees became personally involved in the campaign, often reminding fellow employees to ask customers to make a donation. Walk committee members acted as secret shoppers, visiting the stores with prizes for employees who asked them to make a donation to CureSearch.
No Frills Supermarket and Bag n Save made the pin up campaign fun for employees by creating competitions between cashiers. Teams were created and prizes were awarded to the highest earning teams. The top selling store received a party to celebrate their commitment to ending children's cancer.
No Frills Supermarket and Bag n Save's dedication to the community helped the Omaha Walk raise $180,719 to help fund life-saving cancer research. To learn more about how you can help in the fight against children's cancer, visit www.curesearch.org/get-involved.
