(April, 2021) The Oneida Indian Nation and its SāvOn and Maple Leaf Market Convenience Stores raised $7,187 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s annual shamrock sales campaign, continuing their longstanding partnership to help make a difference in the Central New York community. The SāvOn Plaza Mart location in Oneida sold the most shamrocks, raising $1,220 for the campaign.

Over the past 19 years, the Oneida Indian Nation and its retail convenience stores have raised more than $265,000 for the MDA.

The money raised helps the MDA improve the lives of children and families living with muscular dystrophy.

“The Oneida Indian Nation is proud to continue our partnership with the MDA,” said Chuck Fougnier, Oneida Indian Nation Council Member and Chairman of the Oneida Indian Nation Foundation. “Over the years we have helped raise thousands of dollars to support a worthy cause.”
