NEWBURGH – Brighten up your day with a bouquet of flowers that fights hunger in the local community. Meals on Wheels of Greater Newburgh has once more been selected by local Stop & Shop store leadership as the benefiting hunger organization in the Stop & Shop Bloomin’ 4 Good Program for November.
The fundraiser, which launched in February 2021, is an easy way for shoppers to give back as part of their regular shopping routine. Every $10.99 bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a hunger organization local to the Stop & Shop in which it was purchased.
Meals on Wheels, selected for the third time this year by the Stop & Shop on Route 300 in the Town of Newburgh, will receive $1 from the sale of every specially marked bouquet purchased at the store in November.
“Flowers can make someone’s day, brighten up a room or spread a smile,” said Carole McDermott, president of the organization.
“Now they can fight hunger too! We are thrilled to be chosen to benefit from this unique and impactful Stop & Shop Program, as the demands of those in need are higher than ever this year,” said Robin Bello, executive director.
