The Arc of Warren County announced on Wednesday it has received a $4,000 grant from ShopRite‘s Partners in Caring Program to support food orders at the NORWESCAP Food Bank.

The Arc, based in Washington Township, provides support for families of infants or toddlers with development delays or disabilities.

The grants were made possible through ShopRite’s RoNetco Supermarkets ($1,000) and ShopRite’s Village Supermarkets ($3,000.)

“This grant will make a positive impact on the agency,” John Whitehead, CEO of The Arc of Warren County, said. “It allows us to utilize funds elsewhere by providing us with $4,000 worth of food for our residents. I would like to specifically thank RoNetco Supermarkets, Village Supermarkets, and NORWESCAP for making this opportunity possible.”

ShopRite’s hunger initiative was established in 1999 and supports more than 2,200 charities.

“ShopRite takes seriously its responsibility to help in the fight against hunger and support communities in need,” Robert Zuehlke, manager of corporate social responsibility for ShopRite, said. “It’s our pleasure to support The Arc of Warren County as they help serve and improve the lives of people with developmental and intellectual disabilities.”
