Auburn Top Food & Drug stores are supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October with an employee fundraiser and information for customers.

Top Food employees are participating in Lee National Denim Day on Friday. Top Food employees can wear denim jeans Friday by making a $5 donation that will go toward early detection and treatment research and community educational services related to breast cancer. Top Food stores also will distribute literature Friday that is provided by the American Cancer Society.

Throughout October, Top Food stores will be utilizing pink plastic bags to further raise awareness about breast cancer and the need for regular self-breast exams and annual mammograms.

“Like many Top Food customers, many of our crew members have been affected directly or indirectly by this disease,” said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for Top Food stores. “By wearing jeans, pink ties and pink ribbons Friday, we’ll be joining people throughout the country in the fight against breast cancer.”

Local Top Food & Drug stores are located at 1702 Auburn Way N., and 1406 Lake Tapps Parkway E.

Haggen, Inc. operates 33 supermarkets in Washington and Oregon under the Top Food & Drug Haggen Food & Pharmacy and Larry’s Market names. Headquartered in Bellingham, it is the largest independent grocer and sixth-largest private company based in the State of Washington. For more information, visit
