King Kullen helps fund summer camp programs for disadvantaged Long Island children
King Kullen recently presented two checks totaling $10,000 to Family & Children’s Association and Family Service League to benefit their summer camp programs for disadvantaged children.

King Kullen Grocery Co., Inc., has donated $10,000 to benefit summer camp programs for disadvantaged children in Nassau and Suffolk Counties, a tradition begun by King Kullen more than three decades ago. The donation will be divided evenly between Family & Children’s Association (Nassau County) and Family Service League (Suffolk County).

“Camp provides a stimulating and fun environment where children can learn new activities and meet other children their age,” observed King Kullen President and Chief Operating Officer Joseph W. Brown. “King Kullen’s gift will help fund scholarships for children whose families lack the resources for summer camp. Additionally, customers who want to make a difference can participate in our annual ‘Send A Kid to Camp’ campaign this summer by scanning $5, $2, or $1 coupons at the register at all King Kullen and Wild by Nature stores.”

Family and Children’s Association President and CEO Jeffrey Reynolds stated, “The gifts we receive from individuals and corporations like King Kullen make it possible for us to provide these wonderful experiences for Long Island’s young people. We thank King Kullen for all their support over the years.”

Family Service League Division Director Robyn Berger-Gaston added, “We are very grateful to again receive this generous donation from King Kullen. These camps are often the highlight of the year for the children we help.”

Headquartered in Hauppauge, NY, King Kullen is recognized by the Smithsonian Institution as American’s first supermarket. Founded in 1930 by Michael J. Cullen, King Kullen operates 27 supermarkets and four Wild by Nature stores in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
