Several members of the Princeton Rays baseball team will be appearing at four Grant's Supermarket locations next week in the role of bagging groceries for customers while also collecting canned food good items for those in need.

Several team members will be appearing on Thursday, July 26 from 10:30am-12:30pm at two Princeton-area Grant's Supermarkets: the Main Street location in Princeton and at the Athens Crossroads. They will be bagging groceries for, and visiting with, customers. People shopping during these hours are encouraged to buy an extra non-perishable canned food item and leave it at the checkout counter with the players, who will in turn forward the items to the Tender Mercies Food Pantry of Princeton.

This procedure will then be repeated on Friday, July 27 from 10:30am-12:30pm at two other Grant's locations: Green Valley and Glenwood.

"It is a privilege for us to be asked to partner in such a worthy endeavor as this with Grant's. We hope a lot of folks will come out and also purchase at least one extra canned good item to help out Tender Mercies," said General Manager Jim Holland in making the announcement on July 19, and who also added that the team members bagging groceries may switch on the hour to allow even more players to be involved.

Persons needing more information are asked to contact the Princeton Rays either by e-mail at [email protected] or by telephoning the team's office at Hunnicutt Field at (304) 487-2000.
