ShopRite (a brand of Wakefern Food Corporation) has been a proud partner of Special Olympics New Jersey since 1988. In addition to the year-round support they provide in volunteerism and awareness, they provide in-kind donations at our annual Summer Games.
Each year, over ten tractor trailer loads of food arrive at The College of New Jersey for lunches that are served to more than 18,000 athletes, coaches, families and spectators. In addition to the food, over 300 ShopRite employees volunteer their time to barbeque and serve the recipients of these lunches.
Special Olympics New Jersey is also the recipient of a grant from the ShopRite LPGA Grant Committee to support our year-round sports teams.
ShopRite continues to be an integral part of the Special Olympics New Jersey organization with their support of Law Enforcement events and by providing their registered dietitians to host Nutrition Seminars for SONJ athletes and their families as part of our Healthy Communities program.
