Hi everyone. I was asked by the Shoprite Partners in Caring Program to let you all know about an INCREDIBLY EASY way we can all help to get food to local hungry people. Basically, if you simply comment on this blog post, we can get a whole bunch of cereal to our local food pantries. Below is a description of Partners in Caring and how it works. PLEASE POST A COMMENT! You are all so great!!!
ShopRite Partners In Caring – How It Started
The ShopRite organization recognized the pervasive problem of hunger experienced by so many people right in the neighborhoods served by their stores. It’s a problem that not only exists during the holiday season, when attention is focused on charitable giving, but it also exists throughout the year.
Today, the ShopRite Partners In Caring program supports 23 regional food banks and more than 1,400 charitable agencies with food or meal components. With a $2 million annual donation, more than $20 million has been donated since 1999 in the fight against hunger.
Here’s where you can help. If 30 people comment on this blog post, 30 boxes of cereal will be delivered to our local food pantry. SERIOUSLY!!!! Please comment and be a part of the hunger solution.
How It Works:
Companies that have joined ShopRite in the fight against hunger are marked in stores with the ShopRite Partners In Caring shelf label. By choosing these products, ShopRite customers support manufacturers who contribute to the program.
Who Is Served:
More than 36 million Americans go to bed hungry every night – 12 million of them are children. They could be your neighbors, people you know in the community or maybe somebody you said “hello” to this morning. ShopRite is committed to making a difference in the lives of its neighbors. That’s why ShopRite Partners In Caring dollars ultimately service a variety of organizations with feeding capabilities including emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, child care centers, battered women’s shelters, senior programs, drug rehab centers, programs for the mentally and physically disabled, after school programs and other organizations that support those in need in ShopRite communities.
Every time a customer purchases products with the ShopRite Partners In Caring shelf tag, they support the brands that support the fight against hunger. At ShopRite, customers are not just filling a grocery bag; they are helping to fill empty bowls for thousands of hungry families in your community.
