Seven ShopRite stores raise more than $100,000 for cancer research

Local family and their chain of stores partner with the National Brain Tumor Society

Seven ShopRite stores in Camden and Gloucester counties, owned and operated by Zallie Supermarkets, Inc., asked customers to “round-up” to the nearest dollar at checkout during May — National Brain Tumor Awareness month. In total, more than $102,000 was raised by customers at the ShopRites in Williamstown, West Berlin, Sicklerville, Glassboro, West Deptford, Laurel Hill and Laurel Springs.

The Zallie family has partnered with the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS)for three consecutive years to raise money for research. Zallie Supermarkets Director of Marketing, Giuliana Zallie, said the fundraiser is personal since Zallie’s Manager of Information Systems, Sandy Kramer, recently lost her son to a brain tumor.

“We’ve decided to partner with NBTS not only to honor Sandy’s son but to raise awareness in the communities our stores serve about this life changing illness,” Zallie said. “Over the past three years, our customers have generously contributed close to $260,000 to help find a cure. We are grateful to our customers for opening their hearts and wallets to support this cause.”
