Union County Freeholders Bruce H. Bergen and Alexander Mirabella present a certificate of recognition to ShopRite of Clark Assistant Manager Rick Ferreira, District Manager John Dearani, Shopper Advocate Amberly Rssomano and Associates Will Smith and Sandy Dellaportas congratulating them on spear-heading the ShopRite Partners In Caring community-based hunger fighting program at the ShopRite of Clark.
A competition sponsored last year by ShopRite and cereal company General Mills prompted thousands of the supermarket’s employees to raise $1.5 million to fight hunger. Donations were collected across six states during check-out and at events held in stores.
ShopRite of Clark was among the most active stores in raising funds for local food banks. In recognition of their work raising funds for hunger relief Associates Smith and Dellaportas are featured on a special edition box of Cheerios cereal. The customized cereal boxes, which feature employees from 40 ShopRite stores, are sold exclusively at ShopRite.
