West Seattle Thriftway  Susan G. Komen Fundraising

World wide breast cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer death and among women is the leading cause of cancer death. We have a genuine concern for the individuals to which this disease has touched and have been involved in the fight to create awareness, empower, educate and raise funds for the individuals it has affected.

Annually, for over 10 years we have held a promotional fundraiser to support The "Komen for the Cure" Foundation, to date our store in congunction with other Thriftway stores in Washington state have raised nearly $1 million in funds for this charity's Puget Sound Affiliate. Since its inception in 1982, Komen has invested nearly $1 billion in research, education and health services, making it the largest nonprofit funding source for breast health and breast cancer in the world.
