The Mann "Helps Bag Hunger" at ShopRite Partners In Caring Event

On Wednesday, September 18, 2013, West Philadelphia community and business members were recruited to put on an apron and bag groceries for customers at ShopRite of Parkside in order to “Help Bag Hunger,” an event that raises money for local food pantries through ShopRite Partners In Caring. Several similar events are held annually during September, which is National Hunger Month.
