Burns’ Family Supermarkets To Present $10,000 Check To American Red Cross

Burns Family ShopRite

Nine local Fresh Grocer and ShopRite supermarkets, owned and operated by the Burns family, raised $10,000 for the American Red Cross during the seventh annual fundraiser held in March in honor of National Red Cross Month.

The monthlong fundraiser was supported by both corporate and customer donations. All proceeds will help the Red Cross deliver on its mission of preventing and alleviating human suffering in the face of emergencies.

Patrick J. Burns, president and CEO Burns’ Family Fresh Grocer and ShopRite Supermarkets, will present the check to Guy Triano, CEO American Red Cross Eastern Pennsylvania Region, at The Fresh Grocer of Upper Darby, 421 S. 69th Street, Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, on Monday, April 29, at 10 a.m.

Event participants will be available for interviews after the check presentation ceremony. Fresh Grocer supermarket employees and customers will be available for interviews as well.

The Fresh Grocer, part of Wakefern Food Corp., is a supermarket chain specializing in providing perishables in urban and suburban environments with seven stores operating in the Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey Tri-State area.

ShopRite, also part of Wakefern Food Corp., is a retailer-owned cooperative in the U.S. Today, Wakefern and ShopRite together employ more than 50,000 people throughout New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland.

Since the founding by Clara Barton on May 21, 1881, the American Red Cross has been dedicated to serving people in need. They received their first congressional charter in 1900, and to this day are tasked by the federal government with providing services to members of the American armed forces and their families as well as providing disaster relief in the U.S.
