    By Bridget Goldschmidt, Stagnito Business Information

    All 155 Shaw's and Star Market stores are collecting customer donations to support The One Fund Boston on the occasion of the organization’s first anniversary of helping those affected by the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

    During the campaign, which runs through April 25, shoppers can make monetary contributions to The One Fund at checkout, receiving in turn promotional cards on which they can sign their names or write special messages to be displayed in the stores.

    True Heroes

    “On this important anniversary, I, along with the 18,500 associates of Shaw’s and Star Market would like to show our support to those most affected by the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon and express our sincere thanks to the first responders who helped them,” said Jim Rice, president of West Bridgewater, Mass.-based Shaw’s. “They all have showed us the true meaning of courage, compassion, and strength. As an organization that has been part of New England for more than 150 years, we are extremely proud to assist The One Fund in helping those who need it most.”

    Shaw’s and Star Market will also match customer donations to The One Fund Boston up to $100,000. The banners have been involved with the organization since its inception in the wake of the bombing, which resulted in four deaths and dozens of injuries.

    Throughout five New England states, Shaw’s and Star Markets operate 155 stores employing about 18,500 associates.
