US ARMY VETERAN Joe Drinkhouse of Mullica Hill, departs with a basket full of gifts presented to him at the Zallie Family ShopRite of West Berlin as part of their Seventh Annual Luncheon to Honor Veterans. Gifts include a beautiful patriotic floral arrangement, a Swarovski ornament, gift card, and a gourmet fruit and cheese basket. Storeowners Bruce and George Zallie and nearly 2,000 ShopRite associates look forward to hosting the annual lunches each May as a way to give back to and recognize veterans who live in the communities served by their ShopRite stores. “These brave veterans are our neighbors, friends and role models and we are humbled to once again host six veterans and their families at each of our seven stores. These special lunches give us a moment to pause and help recognize the enormous sacrifices veterans have made for our freedom,” said Bruce Zallie.
