Arlington Food Pavilion sells shamrock mobiles for MDA

ARLINGTON — Customers at the Arlington Food Pavilion can help support families served by the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Through March 17, stores in the Washington state Food Pavilion's chain are conducting a "Shamrocks Against Dystrophy" fundraising program, selling paper shamrock mobiles for $1, $5 and $10. Customers can choose to purchase the mobiles at the Food Pavilion's check-out line, with the proceeds benefitting local families serviced by the MDA. Last year, this program raised $12,417.

All proceeds from the shamrock mobile program will help fund local MDA programs and services, including support groups and equipment, such as wheelchairs and leg braces. The proceeds also support clinics at the University of Washington Hospital and Children's Hospital, and help send children throughout Washington with muscle-wasting diseases to MDA summer camp each year.

The Arlington Food Pavilion is located at 146 Haller St. in Arlington.
