A woman from the Avenel section of Woodbridge is featured on a special edition box of Cheerios.

Thousands of ShopRite associates across six states banded together in September in a friendly competition sponsored by ShopRite and General Mills, the annual ShopRite Partners In Caring Cheerios Contest, according to information provided by ShopRite.

With this year’s contest theme, “The Power of One,” serving as backdrop, ShopRite associates collected donations at check-out and held events in stores to raise awareness and money to fight hunger, helping raise $1.5 million to support regional food banks in communities served by ShopRite stores.

Donna Marie Hughes of Avenel was chosen by ShopRite of Forest & Richmond in Staten Island for the March 5 unveiling.

Each of the 40 winning ShopRite stores chose two associates to be featured on the special-edition box, and received prize money that will be presented to local food pantries chosen by the respective store teams, according to the statement.
