Alcohol Beverage Services Begins ‘Labor Against Cancer’ Initiative to Raise Funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

Alcohol Beverage Services (ABS), in partnership with the Montgomery County Government Employees Organization (MCGEO—UFCW Local 1994) and County Executive Marc Elrich, are supporting the Labor Against Cancer initiative, benefiting the local chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). The “Labor Against Cancer” retail store campaign will run in all 26 County ABS store locations through Nov. 14.

During the campaign, customers will be asked at checkout if they wish to donate $1, $3 or $5 to support LLS and the Labor Against Cancer initiative. County Executive Elrich has issued Executive Order 126-20 to authorize the campaign.

Blood cancer is the second-leading cancer killer of children and young adults under age 19. All funds raised in the campaign will go toward LLS research and patient support services.

ABS and UFCW 1994 have set a goal to raise $35,000 during the campaign. In addition, corporate partner Tito’s Handmade Vodka has pledged a $10,000 donation to LLS.
