“Some people don’t have the resources to purchase these items in stores,” said Shawnda Barrow, client services liaison for Cancer Services. “Cancer patients experience so many needs throughout their journey, and it’s important for them to maintain clean environments as a part of their healing.” 

These essential products included disinfectant spray, anti-bacterial wipes and hand sanitizer, as well as toilet tissue. 

“Although we’re in a different phase from what we’ve seen during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, the need for these essential items is still there,” said Mike Bove, VP, category manager and procurement, Associated Grocers Inc. “The Associated Grocers team donated these healthcare items to organizations that would benefit greatly from the supply.”
