Shaw’s Supermarket Collecting for Pennies

May 6, 2013

Throughout the month of May 2013, Shaw’s Supermarket in Port Plaza, Newburyport will be collecting pennies and other change at each register. The donated funds will be used by Pennies for Poverty to purchase Shaw’s gift cards. The cards will be distributed to five local food pantries  in Greater Newburyport so that they can purchase necessary food items and provide emergency food assistance to needy families. In past years the funds collected have been very useful to the area food pantries as they struggle to keep up with the demand for assistance from those in need in Greater Newburyport. Please be generous as you check out your own groceries at Shaw’s in Newburyport!
