On Friday, Schnucks welcomed members of the Cottleville Firefighters Outreach (CFO) as they dedicated a Caroline’s Cart shopping cart to the grocer’s Cottleville, Missouri, location at 6083 Mid Rivers Mall Drive. CFO partnered with Schnucks Cottleville to make a cart available for local residents after learning how Caroline’s Cart helps parents of children with special needs better navigate a grocery store.

“We are thankful to CFO for including Schnucks in their community outreach,” said Schnucks Director of Community Affairs Joanie Taylor, who coordinated the placement of the cart within the Cottleville store with CFO and Caroline’s Cart. “Our partner at Variety the Children’s Charity of St. Louis and their interim executive director, Brian Roy, identified at least three families in the area who will be able to take advantage of CFO’s generosity while shopping at Schnucks.”

Added CFO Executive Director Skip Stephens, “Caroline’s Carts are created for children with special needs. They provide parents and caregivers a viable option to shop with children without having the impossible task of having to maneuver a wheelchair and a traditional grocery cart at the same time.”

Schnucks’ Cottleville location is the grocery chain’s eighth store to offer customers a Caroline’s Cart.
