Ravitz Family Markets owned ShopRites & Operation Yellow Ribbon partner to support US Troops deployed to Middle East
Operation Yellow Ribbon (OYR) is proud to announce that they are blessed once again to partner with The Ravitz Family Markets and their 5 local ShopRite Stores in sending care packages to the troops serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, Jordan and other areas in the Middle East. Each year, The Ravitz Family Markets owned ShopRites are OYR's number one supporter, sponsor and partner in the community with helping raise funds and generating donations of care package items for our brave women and men deployed to the Middle East. OYR is most excited and grateful to have such support again for 2019. With the help of The Ravitz FamilyMarkets most generous customers and staff, OYR shipped over 120,000 pounds of care package items in 2017-2018.
The Ravitz Family Markets owned ShopRites are helping OYR from Memorial Day weekend through the weekend of July 4th in collections for care packages and donations for the troops at their registers when customers check out and complete their shopping trip. In addition, volunteers from OYR will be visiting each store at the listed dates and locations below to greet customers and kindly ask them as they enter the store to consider purchasing one or more care package items and donating them on the way out as they exit. OYR will then pack the generously donated items and prepare them for shipping to our brave women and men on the care package recipient list of OYR.
Please come out and shop for the troops on any of the dates below that is convenient for you. This is a great way to show your support for the troops and to let them know that we are thinking of them. We all appreciate their service and this is a great way to express our gratitude. A list of items requested can be found on our website at www.OperationYellowRibbon.org or volunteers of OYR will give you a list as you enter the stores at the dates and times below.
We are most grateful for the continuous generosity and support provided by The RavitzFamily Markets in helping support the troops as well as all their generous efforts and giving within the community all year round. In addition, we also give thanks to ShopRite's most generous customers and their amazing staff.
