Hocker’s stores support Alzheimer’s Association

G&E Inc. and Hocker’s Super Center in Ocean View and Millville support the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter each year by selling paper forget-me-nots for $1 each in memory of or in honor of someone who has or had any type of dementia. The campaign ran from July 1 through Aug. 3 this year.

Store manager Ron Holloway and top sales cashier Fran Swift, who sold 1,465 forget-me-nots, recently presented checks totaling $4,344 to Jamie Magee, Sussex County program coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association.

“The Alzheimer’s Association greatly appreciates the continued support of Hocker’s stores for our local programs and services,” said Magee.

The Walk to End Alzheimer’s will be held at Grove Park in Rehoboth Beach on Saturday, Oct. 4, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. There is no registration fee, and anyone can register online at www.alz.org/delval or by calling Jamie Magee at (302) 854-9788 or toll free at 1-800-272-3900.
