ShopRite Owner Honored by the Girl Scouts

April 21, 2014
For almost 20 years, they have set up shop outside his family’s ShopRite stores, hawking Samoas, Tagalongs and all those other delicious varieties of Girl Scout cookies.

“It’s a great environment for learning about philanthropy and doing a good deed,” said Shawn Ravitz, Vice President of Administration for Ravitz Family Markets, a family business which owns and operates five ShopRite stores.

Those same scouts recently honored Ravitz with the prestigious Girl Scout Partner Award. The award pays tribute to a successful male from the community who has gone out of his way to promote female leadership.

“It’s simply a recognition that I accept on behalf of the entire organization,” Ravitz said.

At each of the family’s five ShopRite locations in South Jersey, employees have tried to foster a welcoming environment for Girl Scouts and other charitable organizations. Ravitz said his family members are also regular contributors to Ronald McDonald House, Operation Yellow Ribbon and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
