Rockford community groups receive a total of $2,000 from Rockford Family Fare



All with “giving and receiving” smiles are representatives of four
Rockford organizations, each receiving $500 checks from Rockford’s Family Fare Supermarket.

A Rockford supermarket whose very name is synonymous with sharing generosity continues a tradition of supporting of all things Rockford.

On Tuesday, October 9, Rockford Family Fare Supermarket store director Char Bouwkamp presented $500 checks to each of four Rockford area community groups.

As pictured are: (L to R) Janet Bainbridge, representing RHS Band Boosters; Cathy Levin and Mary Nelson, representing RHS Choir Boosters; (Store Director Char Bouwkamp, center) Sandy Waite, North Kent Community Service Director representing NKCS; Jim Scales, representing RHS Sports Boosters; and Linda Southwick, also representing NKCS.

Each group had been invited to participate in recent Saturday cookout events held at the store. It afforded the groups the opportunity to raise funds along with “telling and selling” their individual programs and causes.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to assist our Rockford Community groups,” said Bouwkamp, a 30-year Rockford resident herself. “Times are tough for so many and this opportunity has given the public a way to help out. In offering customers a $3 cookout lunch meal, sponsored by Spartan Stores, these organizations were able to raise funds for their programs.”
