SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Before heading to the shops to stock up on new things for fall, remember to clear out the closets first. Now, is a good time to purge the closets of clothing items that family members have outgrown or don't wear anymore.

The Spotswood ShopRite is holding a Clothing Drive on Sunday, August 7 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. in the parking lot of their Summerhill Road store. It is a part of their Veteran's Campaign and all of the proceeds from the event will benefit local veteran's organizations.

The Spotswood ShopRite is one of three New Jersey ShopRItes that have been participating in the Veteran's Fundraising Campaign that kicked off on Memorial Day weekend. It is the eighth annual drive and will be running through August 15.

“We are thrilled to announce our eighth campaign to support local veterans organizations throughout our communities,” said Tom Urtz, vice president of operations, ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc. “Charitable giving is at the heart of our ShopRite stores, as, like our customers, we live here, work here and raise our families here, so it’s important to us to be good neighbors and contribute the local community. Our Veterans Campaign is an especially important initiative for us, and is our way of saying thank you to those who have served our country and selflessly given us so much. We look forward to working with our customers, vendors and store associates to make this year as successful as the last.”

Since their Veteran's Fundraising Campaign debuted in 2009, ShopRites throughout the Hudson Valley and Capital Regions on New York state along with the Spotswood ShopRite and ShopRites in Clark and Montague, New Jersey have raised more than two million dollars for veteran's organizations in their areas.

Residents wanting to make donations to the August 7, Clothing Drive should look for the black and yellow truck. It will be located in the parking lot of the Spotswood ShopRite from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
