Mayor Redd, Congressman Norcross to attend November 24th event
Camden, NJ (November 20, 2014)
– Boxing legend Bernard Hopkins has partnered with Price Rite to help spread holiday cheer this Thanksgiving with a donation of 500 turkeys to local residents. The first 500 customers to attend the turkey donation event at the Price Rite of Camden (2881 Mt. Ephraim Avenue) on Monday, November 24th
at 2:00 PM, will receive a voucher for a free frozen turkey.
In addition to the opportunity to receive a free Thanksgiving turkey and meet with the light heavyweight champion, Camden Mayor Dana L. Redd and Congressman Donald Norcross will be on hand at Monday’s event to wish residents a happy holiday.
“Hunger affects the lives of so many families in the communities we serve not just this time of year but all year round,” said Jason Ravitz, vice president of retail operations for the Ravitz Family Markets, a family business that owns and operates the Price Rite of Camden, as well as five ShopRite stores in southern New Jersey. “With the help of a partner like Bernard, it is our hope that these turkeys make the holidays a little brighter for our Camden neighbors.”
