Village Supermarkets – ShopRite Raises Funds for United Way of Greater Union County During the Opening of Its Newest Location


Shoprite employees display several types of food served to guests who attended their fundraiser and store "soft" opening in late April
Union, New Jersey ~ United Way of Greater Union County benefitted from a fundraiser sponsored by Village Super Markets in which employees and several of its vendors were invited to set-up food stations during its soft opening. 
More commonly known as ShopRite, Village Super Market, Inc. owns and operates the stores.  In late April, Village Super Market, Inc.  held a “soft” grand opening and a fundraiser at its newest ShopRite store located on Route 22 West in Union, New Jersey. 
There were over 100 guests who enjoyed a sampling of tasty food stations that were exhibited throughout the store. Guests were asked to donate $5 dollars or more upon entry as a way to easily make contributions while enjoying themselves.  As a result Village Super Market raised over $500 for United Way of Greater Union County, making this a great start to a hopefully long-standing partnership.

“It is always great to see the ingenuity of our partners, who come up with some innovative ways to get people involved in our work.  I thank Village Supermarkets for selecting us as the beneficiary of the event,” states James W. Horne, Jr. President/CEO, United Way of Greater Union County.
