Mayor McCarthy Partners with ShopRite Wednesday to Fight Hunger
McCarthy will be bagging groceries tomorrow as part of ShopRite's "Partners in Caring" program to help bag hunger.
To honor National Hunger Action Month this September, Brookdale ShopRite has declared Wednesday, September 19th “ShopRite Partners In Caring Day.”
To recognize this special day, Mayor Raymond McCarthy will help bag hunger at the Brookdale ShopRite store to raise awareness and funds for food banks within the community.
From 1:30pm – 2:30pm, McCarthy will serve as an honorary grocery bagger at the Brookdale ShopRite, 1409 Broad Street. The store will also be accepting monetary donations for community food banks.
According to national statistics, nearly 50 million Americans, including more than 16 million children, suffer from food insecurity. ShopRite Partners In Caring, a year-round, community based hunger-fighting charity, is helping to raise awareness and inspire action within their local communities through hunger-fighting initiatives. Since its inception in 1999, ShopRite Partners In Caring has donated $29 million to local food banks that support more than 1,700 charities in providing food assistance throughout the northeast United States.
