We joined together with other credit unions in southern New Jersey to collect donations of Kid-Friendly Food. When the school year ends, some children no longer have access to nutritious food. To combat this problem that is most prevalent in southern New Jersey, a Kid-Friendly Food Drive was held throughout May and June.
Thank you to all who donated, our Kid-Friendly Food Drive was a success! We donated 428 pounds of Kid-Friendly Food to the Community Food Bank of NJ Southern Branch! President/CEO James Burns stated, "In our community 1 in 5 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 as a whole are doing everything we can to combat this ongoing situation."
