Proceeds will be used to help The Salvation Army provide 3,000 food baskets to families in Southern New England.

Nonperishable food items can be dropped off at participating Shaw's supermarkets in Rhode Island and Bristol County, Mass., from now through Nov. 25. Look for the marked bins.

Shaw's will provide 3,000 $10 gift cards to be included in the food baskets. The Salvation Army will sort and distribute the food to families.
