Lowe’s joins a long list of retail and restaurant partners to report a record-breaking $18 million in Shamrocks Against Dystrophy sales.

At the conclusion of the 26th annual Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) Shamrocks Against Dystrophy campaign, Lowe’s reported $4.3 million in sales, nearly doubling the previous record of $2.3 million raised by one retail grocery two years ago. The $1 and $5 Shamrocks donations have now raised more than $200 million for Jerry’s Kids.

“We want to thank our loyal customers for their tremendous support and are extremely proud of our Lowe’s team that got behind this effort 100 percent,” said Eduardo Nava, store manager of the Lowe’s of Santa Clarita.

Through Shamrocks Against Dystrophy, $1 and $5 in-store donations help fund research for treatments and cures, support group sessions, clinic fees, MDA summer camp, mobility and communication devices, and much more.

Generous customers of the more than 1,600 participating Lowe’s locations showed their commitment to the Shamrocks Against Dystrophy campaign. Although a nationwide effort, all money raised stays in local communities and provides hope to families living with muscular dystrophy and related diseases.
