ShopRite Helps Commuters Keep Cool
With the dog days of summer already descending on much of the United States, ShopRite teams will make sure users of NJ TRANSIT are cool and hydrated with free bottled water donated by the Northeast regional grocer.
In partnership NJ TRANSIT, the grocery chain’s teams will hand 50,000 bottles of ShopRite brand bottled water to commuters at various NJ TRANSIT terminals beginning Thursday, July 15 at 3 p.m., and continuing throughout the summer, while supplies last. The initiative comes on the heels of NJ TRANSIT’s recent distribution of water to ITS riders at the onset of the heat wave in the Mid-Atlantic region.
“There’s nothing better than a cool drink on a hot day, and ShopRite is happy to be able to provide some relief when the temperature is soaring,” said company spokeswoman Karen Meleta.
