Nick D’Alleva has been a member of the Edible Arrangements® family as a franchise partner since 2004, when he began developing what is now a 3-store enterprise in the Boston-Manchester area.
Nick and his family have been advocates for the National MS Society, Greater New England Chapter and support the organization through Edible Arrangements® product donations and fundraising efforts.
Increasing awareness around MS is a cause that is near to Nick’s heart, as it has personally touched members of his family. Nick’s brother-in-law, niece and members of his extended family have battled or are currently battling this disease.
To date, Nick and his family represent the largest fundraising group for the MS Challenge Walk on Cape Cod!
In September of 2011, Nick championed the MS cause, and led his fellow Boston-Manchester area franchise pertners in a united fundraising effort to help create a world free of MS. With just two weeks of fundraising, these franchise partners raised $5,240!
With the success of this effort, Nick and the Boston-Manchester and Providence area stores raised funds for the entire month of March – National MS Awareness Month. This fundraiser was another great success, raising $18,000 for the National MS Society in 2013. Over the past three years, Nick and other members of the Boston-Manchester and providence area franchise partners have raised $33,000 for the National MS Society.
This year, Baltimore, Detroit, Houston and Minneapolis area franchise partners have joined the effort for the 2014 campaign. During MS Awareness Month this year, 137 Edible Arrangements® store locations will donate $5 for every Orange Citrus Blossom™ sold. This is especially fitting as orange is the official color of the MS movement.
To order any Orange Citrus Blossom™ arrangement to support MS, click or visit any participating Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Houston, Minneapolis, and Providence area Edible Arrangements® store locations.
On behalf of Nick and all the Edible Arrangements® participating cooperative locations in Baltimore, Boston, Detroit, Houston Minneapolis and Providence, thank you in advance for your support!
