Stevie sits down with Rob Backus, GM of Carrs Safeway, to talk about their fundraising efforts for MDA in conjunction with local Alaskans.

Backus says that it may not seem like much when a dollar is put into the buckets at check out, but it adds up: Between 2011 and 2012, he says, over $300,000 was raised. Along with the donation buckets, Carrs Safeway participates in the annual MDA Telethon, which airs on September 1 at 5pm, on ABC.
