September is National Preparedness Month and this year Price Chopper and Clear Channel Communities have launched a special, month-long campaign with the American Red Cross to encourage listeners and shoppers alike to “Be aware. Be prepared. Be Red Cross Ready.”
Throughout the month of September, the campaign will offer a wide array of information to help people become “Red Cross Ready” for emergencies, while also raising funds to help local Red Cross chapters prepare for and respond to disasters big and small.
Now through Sept. 30, customers at the Bristol Price Chopper on Farmington Avenue can support the local Red Cross chapters by making donations at checkout. Price Chopper will match all donations made throughout the month, up to $10,000. Shoppers can also take action during National Preparedness Month by purchasing emergency supplies such as flashlights, batteries, bottled water and non-perishable food at Price Chopper stores.
To further encourage people to “Be Red Cross Ready” this September more than 30 Clear Channel radio stations in the Northeast will share essential Red Cross preparedness information with listeners all month long. People can tune in and/or go online to find helpful tips and resources, including downloadable fact sheets, to help them get better prepared for emergencies.
