Harris Teeter Joins the Fight against Breast Cancer
During October Harris Teeter will educate shoppers about Breast Cancer Awareness while raising funds for research and programs.

Harris Teeter is devoting its October yourwellness brochure to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Like many organizations, Harris Teeter realizes the importance of educating women about what they can do to help prevent the disease, as well as the importance of early breast cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment. In addition, all Harris Teeter stores will be raising funds for a variety of non-profit organizations that support the fight against breast cancer, including the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

 

The next time you visit your neighborhood Harris Teeter, you will be able to purchase pink ribbon pastry items with 5% of the retail price going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Now you can satisfy your sweet tooth and raise money to help defeat breast cancer by purchasing pink layer cakes, pink cupcakes, and brownies. Pink ribbon stickers will be displayed on the package of participating products.

 

The Farmers Market will also be hosting Pink Ribbon Produce, a fundraising and educational event. 100% of the funds raised will be donated to local affiliates of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. We are pleased to announce that eleven produce suppliers have agreed to give generously when shoppers purchase their products during October.

 

Comfort and convenience also support the cause. From hats and sweatshirts to hairbrushes and travel mugs, shoppers can help increase awareness of the fight against breast cancer by purchasing these easy to spot products displaying the signature Breast Cancer Awareness pink ribbon.
