Attention on aisle 3: Yes, Safeway shoppers, that is U.S. Rep. James P. Moran.

Moran is bagging groceries today at the Safeway at the Bradlee Shopping Center in Alexandria from noon to 1. Why? Well, because who doesn’t enjoy having a powerful person bag their groceries? Also, to help out Safeway’s annual campaign to fight prostate cancer.

The company raises money each year to aide prostate cancer research–it’s raised almost $42 million over the last nine years. Appearances like Moran’s raise awareness and encourage giving.
