Glassboro Shoprite named a winner of the annual Partners in Caring Cheerios Contest
(Glassboro, NJ) On Monday, March 11, Zallie's owners Mike and Julianna Zallie were presented with a Proclamation recognizing the Glassboro Shoprite as one of the winning stores of the annual Partners in Caring Cheerios Contest.
ShopRite associates across six states banded together in a friendly competition called the ShopRite Partners in Caring Cheerios Contest sponsored by ShopRite and General Mills. The theme of this year’s contest was "20 Years of Good," where money raised by ShopRite associates went toward supporting the efforts of food banks in the local communities.
Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “The Glassboro Shoprite went above and beyond raising money for the Cheerios contest. Raising a total of $35,061.00 across all their events out of the $1.51 million raised by all participating Shoprite associates across six states, the Glassboro Shoprite was named among the winning stores of the friendly competition thanks to all their hard work.”
Freeholder Simmons, Liaison to the Department of Economic Development said, “The Glassboro Shoprite used its ties to the community to its advantage. By working with various groups and bringing the community together, the Glassboro Shoprite chose to donate to the Glassboro Childhood Development Center and Center for Family Services. We are grateful for their commitment to our families.”
The Glassboro ShopRite held a number of events from daily sales of soft pretzels and hot dogs to weekend sales of deli sandwiches. They hosted a Community Day, sidewalk sale, their annual “Welcome Back Rowan” week of events and hosted “Partners in Caring Bag for Hunger” in collaboration with the Glassboro Fire Department, Glassboro VFW Post 679, Glassboro Police Department, SJ Vietnam Veterans, Disabled American Veterans and other civic groups.
