WARWICK – On Thursday, March 18, the ShopRite of Warwick unveiled a special-edition Cheerios box featuring the winners of its annual ShopRite Partners In Caring Cheerios Contest, sponsored in partnership with General Mills. It’s a tradition that recognizes associates for fighting hunger in the communities where ShopRite stores operate. Store associates, Gabriela Tapia and Nick Jackson from the ShopRite of Warwick are featured on the box, which was unveiled at an in-store ceremony, in recognition of their fundraising efforts to support regional food banks.
In addition to the unveiling, the ShopRite of Warwick presented a $500 donation to the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, made possible by the prize money received from the contest. With this year’s contest theme, “Ending Hunger Together,” serving as the backdrop, ShopRite associates came together last September to collect donations at check-out, helping to raise $1 million for regional food banks in several states.
