On March 4, 2016 firefighters from Cottleville Fire Protection District delivered a new shopping cart to Cottleville Schnucks on behalf of Cottleville Firefighters Outreach. The new cart, called Caroline’s Cart, is a specialized cart designed to assist parents of children with special needs navigate the store.

“We are thankful to CFO for including Schnucks in their community outreach,” said Schnucks Director of Community Affairs Joanie Taylor, who coordinated the placement of the cart within the Cottleville store with CFO and Caroline’s Cart. “Our partner and their COO, Brian Roy, Variety Children’s Charity of St. Louis, identified at least three families in the area who will be able to take advantage of CFO’s generosity while shopping at Schnucks.” Cottleville Schnucks will be the company’s eighth store to offer customers a Caroline’s Cart.  “Caroline’s Carts are created for children with special needs,” said CFO Executive Director Skip Stephens. “They provide parents and caregivers a viable option to shop with children without having the impossible task of having to maneuver a wheelchair and a traditional grocery cart at the same time.”
