On behalf of the Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry and all of the clients it serves, I wish to thank Brett Wing, President of ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc., for the recent generous gift of Five Hundred Dollars ($500) from the ShopRite Partners in Caring Fund. That gift, together with others from our community, will be utilized by the pantry in fulfilling its mission of feeding the hungry among us in the Town of Warwick.
I also wish to thank him for the opportunity provided to me, and other members of the Warwick community, to participate in the Partners in Caring event on Mon., Mar. 6 at ShopRite of Warwick. Events like that raise awareness of food insecurity and hunger, as well as the efforts of the pantry, and ShopRite and its associates and corporate partners, in fighting food insecurity and hunger.
ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc. and Wakefern Food Corporation are great and reliable supporters of the pantry. Over and over, they come to our aid, including with the annual Partners in Caring grant at Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. Finally, I cannot overstate the support we receive locally from ShopRite of Warwick and manager Bernie McGoldrick. I am truly grateful. Bless you all and thank you.
GLENN P. DICKES, DIRECTOR OF THE PANTRY
