Philabundance would like to take this opportunity to recognize the long-standing commitment as well as the significant impact that ShopRite has had on helping to feed the hungry in the Philadelphia market. Since 1999, when their year-round, hunger- fighting program ShopRite Partners In Caring began, our organization has been the recipient of more than $2 million dollars from ShopRite. In this year alone, we will receive $200,000 in ShopRite Partners In Caring funds to help support community organizations in Philadelphia. The funds go on account at Philabundance to enable local agencies to access much needed produce, dry goods and proteins.
Through their Check-Out Hunger campaign, which takes place at the registers of ShopRite stores in the fall of each year, Philabundance has received hundreds of thousands of dollars. ShopRite also donates $15,000 annually to Philabundance through their sponsorship of the ShopRite LPGA Classic Golf Tournament, which raises and disperses funds to many charities in our area.
ShopRite’s commitment continues throughout the year with in-kind donations – turkeys during the holidays, thousands of cans donated during their annual Can-Can event, and support of our Spread the Love campaign with a jar of peanut butter or jelly for every Facebook fan we acquire.
They are truly a Vision Partner and we are so grateful for ShopRite’s long-standing commitment and support of the mission of Philabundance – - driving hunger from our communities
