Price Rite Marketplace and Christmas Wish CT teamed up to spread some holiday cheer at the Price Rite of Wethersfield this week.
Christmas Wish CT surprised customers by paying their grocery bills at checkout. Price Rite Marketplace and Christmas Wish CT paid it forward by gifting approximately $3,000 in groceries during the in-store event on Wednesday, Dec. 20.
Customers were randomly selected by volunteer "elf help” from Christmas Wish CT and Town of Wethersfield Mayor Amy Bello.
