Even small donations of food or money will help the FoodBank of New Jersey’s Monmouth and Ocean Counties assist hundreds of families in need this holiday season.
To help gather food contributions, Diane Turton, REALTORS®, a member of RISMedia’s Real Estate Information Network® (RREIN), has placed collection bins in each of its 14 sales offices. Neighbors can bring non-perishable food items to offices which are located from Rumson to Beach Haven and open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The FoodBank collects donated and surplus food in its warehouse and distributes it to families in need through a variety of food pantries, senior citizen centers, soup kitchens and houses of worship throughout the Jersey Shore. The non-profit organization also runs several programs that address the root causes of hunger.
“The FoodBank is honored to partner with Diane Turton and her area offices as they again begin their holiday food drive to help those in need in our neighborhoods,” says Ellen Koment of the FoodBank of Monmouth & Ocean Counties. “
The FoodBank’s list of non-perishable food items includes canned meals, fruits and vegetables as well as pasta/rice, stuffing, gravy and instant potatoes. For a more complete list of food items visit the FoodBank’s website at www.foodbank.org.
