Vallarta Supermarkets dedicates each year one full month, chain-wide, to allow customers and visitors make donations to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. The campaign consists of cashiers inviting customers to donate at the check-stands, weekly updates on store performances, and full MDA decor at the front-end of the stores with signed MDA mobiles. All funds raised at the end of the fundraiser are disbursed to the local MDA chapters based on store locations. This confirms Vallarta Supermarkets sincere commitment to help the local communities they serve.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association uses raised funds in three specific areas – MDA Summer Camp, MDA Research, and Assistance to MDA families. The MDA Summer Camp is an exciting one-week camp for children with Muscular Dystrophy which allows the kids to have a fun and enjoyable summer performing activities catered to their abilities – this event raises the children's self esteem as they are able to play, swim, and run the same way as other children their ages. In the research portion, MDA dedicates funds for scientific research for new therapies, medicine, technologies, and a better understanding on neuromuscular diseases in hopes of one day securing a cure for each type. Part of MDA's commitment to their registered families is free assistance for their daily use machines, medicine, and more. All of this is available thanks to the support received by many organizations, including Vallarta Supermarkets.

This year, between all forty-four Vallarta Supermarkets locations, they raised a total of $143,556.79. The Top-Raising location this year was Vallarta Supermarkets on Butler Ave in Fresno, California. This store alone raised an impressive amount of $16,535.83 in only 30 days.
