The Oneida Nation’s SāvOn stores collected $23,146 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual “Shamrocks for Dystrophy” fundraiser. The 2010 total was up more than $5,500 over last year.
Customers were asked to purchase shamrocks for $1 or $5. The Verona store at Routes 31/365 led the fund-raising effort with $5,626. The Oneida Mart store at 1 Lenox Ave recorded the largest boost in shamrock sales, recording an increase of 16 percent from a year ago.
