Delaware ShopRites partner with Zip Code program


Kenny Family ShopRites of Delaware joined forces with Zip Code Wilmington to offer technology education to interested associate. Stores are located in northern New Castle County.

The new partnership will provide Delaware ShopRite associates an opportunity to grow in their careers through Zip Code Wilmington’s 12-week software development and data engineering program. Zip Code will also conduct outreach at ShopRite locations to educate the public about its opportunities.

“Our associates are our family, and we want our family members to thrive and excel,” said Melissa Kenny, executive vice president of Kenny Family ShopRites of Delaware. “Zip Code Wilmington is a great partner with proven results for hundreds of Delawareans. We support its mission and are glad to help spread the word to our associates and customers.”

“We are pleased to work with Kenny Family ShopRites of Delaware to help educate their associates about opportunities that can grow their careers into the tech world,” said Zip Code Wilmington Executive Director Desa Burton. “Over the last seven years, Zip Code Wilmington has helped prepare more than 500 people for new careers. Collaboration with community leaders such as this are vital to helping more people reach their full potential.”

The connection between the two organizations was sparked by two Zip Code Wilmington graduates who are former ShopRite associates.
