Buehler’s Fresh Foods Partners with the American Heart Association

Buehler’s Fresh Foods is promoting a Life is Why We Give campaign at the registers of all 13 stores from September 19, 2020 – October 17, 2020 asking customers to buy a $1, $5 or $10 heart in support of the American Heart Association of Stark and Wayne counties.

Customers are encouraged to write their ‘WHY’ on the heart and hearts will be posted at each of the stores to raise awareness.  Additionally, wallet cards with the signs of heart attack and stroke will be available for free while supplies last.

Mike Davidson stated, “We are honored to be partnering with the American Heart Association as we battle a disease that has an impact on every one of our customers and employees. Buehler’s Fresh Foods appreciates the support of our customers who are always generous contributors to our campaign.”

The leading cause of death in the Wayne and Stark communities is heart disease at 28%. 1 in 3 of those community members are at high risk for heart disease, and nearly 100,000 people are diagnosed with hypertension or high blood pressure. Your support of the American Heart Association will also allow us to place 500 automatic blood pressure cuffs and lifesaving education in Stark and Wayne Counties.

About the Life is Why We Give campaign:

We want everyone to experience more of life’s precious moments. To do that, we must be healthy — in heart and mind. It’s why we’ve made better heart and brain health our mission. And together, we’ve made an extraordinary impact. But we’re just beginning. Until the world is free of heart disease and stroke, we’ll work together to make a healthier, longer life possible for everyone. Why do we do what we do? Because we’re the American Heart Association. And life is why.

About the American Heart Association:

The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world. The AHA teams with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases.

About Buehler’s Fresh Foods:

Buehler’s Fresh Foods grocery store was founded in 1929 by E.L. Buehler and his wife, Helen. The family moved the business in 1932 to Wooster, and, after four generations, grew to 13 stores serving the northeast Ohio market. In 2017, Buehler’s became an ESOP (employee stock ownership program) with the belief that selling to their own employees was the best way to assure the continuation of the innovative and creative spirit that made the chain a benchmark for independent grocers.

The 13 Buehler’s Fresh Foods supermarkets are located in Wooster (2), Orrville, Wadsworth, Medina (2), Ashland, New Philadelphia, Dover, Jackson Township (Canton), Coshocton, Portage Lakes (Green) and Massillon, Ohio. Buehler’s Fresh Foods is committed to environmentally responsible behavior, local sourcing of product and supporting the communities in which we operate.
