Seekonk is “Simply the Best!”


Once again, the people of Seekonk proved to be “simply the best!” When the Stop & Shop on Newman Ave in north Seekonk asked their customers to help the local food pantry, they responded with a resounding “Yes”! Store manager Sherry Olson had the notion to run a food drive to “Fill a Truck for Doorways”, and she ordered 20 cases of needed canned goods. Her customers bought them out in less than 24 hours! She reordered, and then reordered again; in a little over a week, Stop & Shop customers purchased 183 cases of canned goods for donation to the local food pantry – a total of 2,278 cans. These groceries were items in short supply at the food bank, and the outpouring of generous support will help fill the cupboards of homes throughout our community. Thank you to the management and employees of Stop & Shop who undertook this wonderful project, and thank you to the shoppers who filled a truck for Doorways.
