ShopRite Partners In Caring is a year-round, community-based, hunger-fighting initiative through which ShopRite team members have raised more than $48 million since its inception in 1999. The Partners in Caring program assists more than 2,200 charities that aid those in need, including emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, child care centers, women’s shelters, senior citizen programs, drug rehabilitation centers, programs for the mentally- and physically-challenged, and after-school programs, among others.

For 20 years, ShopRite has partnered with General Mills for an annual contest that rewards the stores that raise the most money for Partners in Caring. Top stores nominate two of their team members to appear on a special edition box of Cheerios that debuts in March of the following year. General Mills also gives the top stores donations of $1,000 to $3,000 for food pantries selected by the stores.

Associates at ShopRite of Medford, ShopRite of Lawnside and ShopRite of Gibbstown are very motivated not for the sake of competition, but to raise money for local people in need. Their drive is not unlike the guiding philosophy of ShopRite of Medford Store Manager Carney Siciliano: “People first, results always.” At all three stores, associates focus on people and accept the good results that follow.

Hunger Fighting Champions selected for the 2020 Cheerios box are Nancy Kraus and Jodi Lattiere from ShopRite of Medford, and Suzanne Nowicki and Laura Petronella from ShopRite of Lawnside. Their dedication was in full force throughout September – Hunger Action Month – and stays strong all year long.

Nancy is a cashier whose enthusiasm for the Partners In Caring program always shines through! She was a leader in the Register Round Ups, informing customers about the need and gently asking them to participate. Nancy made a significant impact on the overall total Round Up dollars.

Jodi, manager of the Floral Department, helped with all the store events focused on the Partners In Caring goal, and she spearheaded many of the in-store hot dog sales and root beer floats sales that raise money for the cause. She also makes the General Mills displays look amazing.

Suzanne, a manager in the Catering Department, organized or helped to organize every event, including taking the lead on in-store hot dog sales and bake sales. She was instrumental in the success of ShopRite of Lawnside’s Drive Out Hunger Car Show, which was the store’s biggest event.

Laura is a cashier with strong enthusiasm for the Partners In Caring program. She was a leader in the Register Round Ups and made a significant impact on the overall total Round Up dollars.

The friendly competition is sponsored by ShopRite and General Mills. Select team members are treated to a professional photo shoot that forms the basis for a special edition Cheerios box, available only at ShopRite stores in Spring 2020.
