Ladies and gentleman, start your engines!

The Cheerios #3 Chevrolet NASCAR Showcar will be making a pit stop at the ShopRites of Canton and West Hartford on Saturday, Aug. 27. In partnership with car sponsor General Mills, Joseph Family Markets is hosting the car to bring greater visibility to the local fight against hunger and support their annual ShopRite Partners In Caring fundraising campaign.

Throughout the month of September, ShopRite associates collect donations at check-out and hold various events to raise funds for local food banks in the communities they serve. Last year, the two stores, which are owned and operated by Chuck and Debbie Joseph, raised a combined total of $30,754 and have contributed over $151,700 to the local fight against hunger since their inception in 2010.

The Cheerios car will be at the Canton ShopRite (110 Albany Turnpike in The Shoppes of Farmington Valley) from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27, and will visit the ShopRite of West Hartford (46 Kane St.) from 3 – 6 p.m. that same day.

Each store will host Cheerios-themed activities and offer photo opportunities with the vehicle. The events are free and open to the public.

Donations to ShopRite’s Partners in Caring initiative are appreciated.
