Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research  

 

This year at the Boston Bruins Alumni charity game, all profits are being donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research – and this year, the Andover Bookstore is hoping to donate as well, but we need your help!

 

 

From 5:30pm – 7:30pm on Tuesday, September 2,

20% of all in store sales will be donated to the cause!


 

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease that affects the motor system. Those who have PD suffer from difficulties with breathing, balance, movement, and heart function. The disease is caused by the slow deterioration of the nerve cells in the brain, which create dopamine; a natural substance found in the brain that helps control muscle movement throughout the body. There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease.


 

So please come, buy books, and help support research for Parkinson’s, which affects nearly 500,000 people in the United States alone, with an estimated 50,000 Americans newly diagnosed each year.

Why shop Indie?

Why shop Indie?

When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits:

  • The Economy
  • Spend $100 at a local and $68 of that stays in your community. Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.
  • Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
  • More of your taxes are reinvested in your community — where they belong.
  • The Environment
  • Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
  • Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.
  • The Community
  • Local retailers are your friends and neighbors — support them and they’ll support you.
  • Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
  • More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.
