Morrell Park ShopRite gives back

The Morrell Park ShopRite donated a check Friday in the amount of $10,000 to the Police Survivors Fund. The fund raises money for the family members of the city’s fallen police officers. Capt. Deborah Kelly of the 8th District was on hand to accept the check from Richard McMenamin, owner and operator of the Morrell Park ShopRite. With her were Steven J. Weller, director of marketing for the Fraternal Order of Police, State Rep. Dennis O’Brien and Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey.
