I was happy to see that ShopRite donated $100,000 to the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. "Twenty-seven participating ShopRite stores collected donations at checkout during its fall 2018 and winter 2019 fundraising campaigns in support of the hospital’s mission to provide advanced pediatric care to thousands of local children each year. To date, ShopRite has raised over $1.2 million to benefit Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital."
ShopRite stores that participated in the campaign include: in Dutchess County: ShopRite of Fishkill, ShopRite of Lagrangeville and ShopRite of Poughkeepsie. ShopRite stores in New Paltz, Kingston, Ellenville and many other locations also participated.
