The employees of 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 a dollar 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 with tremendous success. In addition, Store Manager Ron Holloway organized a bake sale that was held Aug. 3.
Shown presenting the checks totaling $2,169.46 to Jamie Magee, Sussex County program coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association, is Delaware Sen. Gerald Hocker, R-Ocean View, owner of Hocker’s Stores. Magee said, “The Alzheimer’s Association is very grateful for the continued support of Hocker’s stores and their support of local programs and services.”
