ShopRite Raises $910,000 During 11th Annual Veterans Fundraising Campaign

MONTAGUE — ShopRite today announced its eleventh annual Veterans Fundraising Campaign, held at 35 stores throughout New York and New Jersey, raised a total of $910,000 to benefit local veterans organizations. To support the initiative, ShopRite stores throughout the Hudson Valley and Capital Region in New York, along with three New Jersey stores, collected donations at checkout from May 24 through August 3 and organized fundraising events throughout the summer including car shows, food drives, pancake breakfasts, tricky trays, corn hole, golf and softball tournaments and more, with all proceeds from each event directly benefitting veterans organizations.
The results of the 2019 campaign were announced during ShopRite's annual golf outing, where a check was presented by ShopRite executives and team members from this year's top five fundraising stores: ShopRite of Montague, ShopRite of Warwick, ShopRite of Vails Gate, ShopRite of Carmel and ShopRite of Fishkill. Funds raised will be divided among veterans organizations including The Tower of Hope, the Committee for Families of War Veterans, Hudson Valley Honor Flight, the Orange County Veterans Food Pantry, Tri-County Council for Vietnam Era War Veterans and Unified Military Affairs Council, in addition to other local organizations that serve communities within ShopRite's trading area.
"We're proud to announce that our annual campaign raised $910,000 to benefit local veterans and their families within our ShopRite communities" said Tom Urtz, vice president of operations, ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc. "We would like to extend a sincere thank you to our generous customers, associates and vendors who support the campaign year after year, which allows us to continue making a difference in veterans' lives. We're extremely appreciative for all that our veterans have done, so this initiative is very close to our hearts."
In 2018, ShopRite raised over $1 million to benefit local veterans organizations, yielding the most funds raised for a Veterans Fundraising Campaign in a single year. More than $5.9 million has been raised since the campaign's 2009 inception.
"Our annual campaign relies heavily on the collaborative efforts and generosity of ShopRite customers, store associates and vendors.
We are so proud and grateful of the funds raised this year that will support our veterans," said Brett Wing, president and chief operating officer, ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc.
