Since 1918, Stop & Shop has been committed to the communities it serves and "giving back" continues to be a strong part of our corporate culture.
From our corporate headquarters to our stores and distribution centers, we strive to be good community partners. Through our corporate donations we support organizations that matter to and support our customers with a focus on three major areas:
- Healthy Living (Nutrition, Exercise and Play)
- Hunger Relief
- Kids (K-12)
