Local charities will be at the store on June 7 and will also be at the June 18 fund raiser to talk about hunger, charities that they support, and how they help to feed the hungry in our local community. Meanwhile, General Mills is running a promotion at ShopRite stores June 5 - 11 by donating $1 to ShopRite Partners In Caring for every four General Mills products purchased, up to $20,000.
