Stop & Shop Customers Are Generous To Doorways


One week in April, the Newman Avenue Stop & Shop sponsored a food donation drive for the Doorways Food Pantry here in Seekonk. As customers were checking out, the cashier would ask if they wanted to “buy a can of beans for Doorways” – in less than a week, they had generated over 3,000 cans of beans donated to the food pantry. Having raised enough beans, Stop & Shop cashiers then asked their shoppers to donate a box of pasta, generating over 500 boxes of pasta in 48 hours. The support we receive from the residents of this community is nothing short of incredible!

We also want to express our appreciation to Stop & Shop Corporation for taking such a leading role in combatting the problem of food uncertainty in our community. Their sponsorship, and their employees’ enthusiastic support, coupled with their customers’ openhanded giving, are making a real difference in the lives of our neighbors. More than sixty local families rely on Doorways every week, and Doorways, in turn, relies on people like you. On behalf of the Board of Directors, the volunteers, and especially the clients of Doorways, we want to say “Thank you”.
