SAFEWAY CAMPAIGN

Safeway and Muscular Dystrophy Canada present
the 2015 In-Store Campaign

 

EVENT_Safeway_LOGO

 

Muscular Dystrophy Canada has teamed up with Safeway and Easter Seals Canada to raise much needed funds to support those living with neuromuscular disorders and other disabilities. From June 12 to 28, 2015 Safeway locations across Western Canada and Northwestern Ontario will share quick, healthy meal tips and help to educate customers about the importance of nutritional balance and hydration when living with a disability. With the generous help of Safeway, we are again able to offer the Safeway Mobility Grants and fund much-needed research to continue the fight against neuromuscular disorders.

Please also visit muscle.ca/eatbetter for a wealth of resources, blog posts, nutritional information and research.

About the Safeway Mobility Grant

Safeway has partnered with Muscular Dystrophy Canada to raise much needed funds in order to assist registered clients in purchasing new mobility-related equipment in Western Canada and Northwestern Ontario.

These grants may include the following:

  • Mobility aids such as power and manual wheelchairs, walkers and scooters;
  • Seating and positioning aids such as specialty cushions, power tilt and lift chairs;
  • Orthopaedic devices such as leg braces, AFOs and orthopaedic splinting;
  • Access equipment such as stair glides, porch lifts and ramps;
  • Other items such as hospital beds/mattresses, patient lifters, ventilators, cough assists and bathing devices;
  • Small contributions to accessible vehicles and home modifications.
