Kid-Friendly Food Drive A Success
Thank you to everyone who donated to our Kid-Friendly Food Drive!
With the cost of food skyrocketing, Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union, along with other area credit unions, joined forces to hold a Kid-Friendly Food Drive during the months of May and June. While children are in school, they usually get breakfast and lunch. However, some children no longer have access to nutritious food when the school year ends. To combat this problem, Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union collected 385 pounds of food that children would enjoy eating, like macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, applesauce, and so much more.
The Community Food Bank of NJ Southern Branch was very impressed with the amount of food collected and all the items now available to families needing food! They have been supplying food, help, and hope to our community for over 45 years.
Jersey Shore Federal Credit Union CEO James Burns stated, “In this economy, many children go hungry because their family lacks the resources to purchase nutritious food. We cannot thank our members, staff, community, and volunteers enough for all their hard work and donations to ensure we are doing all we can to combat this ongoing situation.”Pictured Left to Right: Social Action Committee Members Garrett Garcia and Nancy Condran.
