“The overwhelming generosity of our customers combined with the dedication of our hardworking associates continues to make our Red Cross Month fundraiser a great success year after year,” said Patrick Burns, president and CEO of Burns Family Neighborhood Markets. Since launching the campaign four years ago, The Fresh Grocer Supermarkets have raised $38,500 for the Red Cross.
