Pharmacist owner/operator Julie Traballo

The Shoppers Tree of Life Campaign is an annual fundraiser held locally to benefit the Cindy Parolin Safe Home Program run by Princeton Family Services. The four week Tree of Life donation program as well as a bake sale and cook book sale raised $2420 for the Safe Home Program this year. Shoppers employees and members of Family Services provided baked goods for the sale. The first Princeton Home Based Business Trade Show sponsored by Shoppers and run by Kim Nolin, gave the Shoppers charity of choice a donation in the amount of $325.60 — proceeds from the table rentals and donations at the door.

“Thank you so much,” said Dani Grothe of Princeton Family Services, “We so appreciate the work you do for us.”

The Shoppers Cook Book created to support the Safe Home Program is available at the till for $8.
