TOP Food & Drug stores help raise $42,283 for Seattle Children’s Hospital

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

Customers of TOP Food and Drug and Haggen Food and Pharmacy stores recently donated $42,283 to Seattle Children’s Hospital.

TOP Food and Haggen stores in Washington offered Miracle Balloons for $1 apiece from June 2-15 as a fundraiser for Seattle Children’s Hospital. The stores also presented barbecues with donations going to Seattle Children’s.

The donations support uncompensated care, enabling children to receive medical care regardless of their family’s ability to pay. The annual drive at TOP Food and Haggen stores now has raised more than $310,000 for uncompensated care at Seattle Children’s since 2004.

“The generosity of our customers was amazing as donations were up 30 percent this year,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for TOP Food and Haggen stores.

Founded in 1907, Seattle Children’s serves as the pediatric referral center for Washington, Alaska, Idaho and Montana. For more information, visit Chidren's website.

Haggen, Inc. operates 33 supermarkets in Washington and Oregon under the TOP Food and Drug and Haggen Food and Pharmacy names. Headquartered in Bellingham, it is the largest independent grocer and sixth-largest private company based in the State of Washington.  The Shoreline Top Foods store is located at N 175th and Midvale Ave N.
