ShopRite collecting donations for local veterans organizations

ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc. (SRS), owner and operator of 34 stores throughout New York and New Jersey, is holding its ninth annual Veterans Fundraising Campaign through July 15. Donations will be collected at ShopRite stores throughout the Hudson Valley and Capital Regions in New York, along with three New Jersey ShopRite stores, to benefit several local veterans organizations within the communities its stores serve.

The success of the annual SRS Veterans Fundraising Campaign relies on the collaborative efforts and generosity of ShopRite customers, store associates and vendors. In addition to donations collected at checkout, stores raise additional funds by organizing events including 5K runs and walks, food drives, raffles and more. In 2016, ShopRite raised $765,000 for local veterans, and has raised more than $2.8 million since the campaign’s 2009 inception.

The 2017 campaign will benefit local organizations including, but not limited to, Tower of Hope, Committee for the Families of War Veterans, Hudson Valley Honor Flight, Orange County Veterans Food Pantry, Tri-County Council for Vietnam Era War Veterans and the Unified Military Affairs Council.

Some of the local stores participating in the campaign include: ShopRite of Bedford, ShopRite of Cortlandt, ShopRite of Croton, ShopRite of New Rochelle, ShopRite of Scarsdale, ShopRite of Thornwood, ShopRite of Greenway Plaza and ShopRite of Tuckahoe Road in Yonkers, and ShopRite of White Plains; and ShopRite of Carmel.
