BERLIN, N.J. — For the second year in a row, A.C. Moore Arts and Crafts along with its associates and customers, will team up to raise funds from Sept. 9 through Oct. 13, 2012, for the American Cancer Society through A.C. Moore's "Crafting a Better World" program." This initiative coincides with the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign in October, and gives customers an opportunity to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer.
"Last year, our stores collectively raised more than $123,000 in just a short period of time," said Pepe Piperno, chairman of the board of A.C. Moore. "This year, we are hoping to surpass that amount. The American Cancer Society is an organization that has truly made a difference in the world of so many who have fought and are continuing to fight breast cancer."
This fundraising program is part of A.C. Moore's "Crafting a Better World" Program which helps local communities. Since its launch in 2010, the program has raised more than $900,000 for not-for-profit organizations that provide services in the communities in which A.C. Moore stores operate.
