National Multiple Sclerosis Society

WOODBRIDGE, NEW JERSEY (Market Watch) - Today (March 1), the National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter announced its partnership with the Boston-Manchester Co-op of Edible Arrangements in a campaign to raise funds and awareness to stop progression, restore function and end multiple sclerosis forever.

During the month of March, coinciding with the National MS Society's MS Awareness Month, Edible Arrangements stores throughout Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire will donate a portion of their sales from every Orange Blossom arrangement purchased to the National MS Society. This arrangement is especially fitting because orange is the official color of The Society. As long as arrangements are ordered and paid for during the month of March, they can be delivered at any time throughout the year.

"We are honored to have the opportunity to give back to the community and help fight a disease that affects so many people across the world," states Chris Dellamarggio, inaugural Edible Arrangements franchise owner and president of the Boston-Manchester Co-op.

"The National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter is thrilled to work with Edible Arrangements, a company that was built around celebrating life. This fundraiser helps individuals and families move together toward a world free of MS," said Arlyn White, President & CEO of the Greater New England Chapter.

To order an Orange Blossom bouquet, call or visit any of the participating MA or NH locations or visit www.EdibleArrangements.com/MS and select any Orange Blossom arrangement (product codes:1025)(product codes:1064 or 1066).

About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society The Greater New England Chapter addresses the challenges of more than 19,000 individuals and their families affected by multiple sclerosis in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, collaborating with MS organizations around the world and providing programs and services designed to help people with MS and their families move forward with their lives.

Early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can make a difference for people with multiple sclerosis. Learn about your options by talking to your health care professional and contacting the National MS Society at www.MSnewengland.org or 1-800-344-4867.
