Bridgeport Juniors Annual Grocery Grab Slated for November 7; Tickets Available Now

By Trina Runner on September 24, 2019 via

For those who are hardcore Game Show Network fans, Supermarket Sweep stands out as one of the most exciting shows. Ordinary people have the opportunity to don sneakers and run through an empty grocery store, stocking their carts with hundreds or thousands of dollars in merchandise, all for free.
Locally, the annual Grocery Grab, sponsored by GFWC Bridgeport Juniors, offers the same opportunity. Partnering with Eastpointe Kroger, the organization holds the event each year as a fundraiser for the Harrison County Backpack Program.  The statewide mission of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs is “Feed Our Future” and the Bridgeport Juniors have been instrumental in providing for food insecure families and children in Harrison County Schools.
“There are those who leave school for the weekends or holidays and don’t have food at home,” said Junior President JoAnna Kirk. “The Grocery Grab fundraiser allows us to shop for nutritional food options, create bags for the children on a regular basis and deliver them to schools throughout the county.”
Tickets are currently available through by contacting any Bridgeport Junior Woman’s Club member. Tickets are $5 each or five for $20.  The drawing for the top ten finalists will be on October 31and each finalist will receive a prize.  The winner will participate in a two-minute shopping spree at Eastpointe Kroger on November 7 at 10:30 a.m.
