WOODBRIDGE—Mayor John E. McCormac announced the kick-off of Woodbridge Township’s 2009 “Season of Giving” holiday food drive last week.
“More than ever, we are seeking food donations for Woodbridge Township food pantries that provide for the hungry every day throughout the year,” said McCormac. “This holiday season, we’ve set a goal to collect at least 10,000 pounds of non-perishable food through the ‘Season of Giving’ holiday food drive – food that will be immediately distributed by our local food pantries to township residents that truly need the supplies. I would like to once again encourage our always generous township residents to donate a can… or two… or three… of non-perishable foods to help neighbors and families experience a healthier and happier holiday as they attend Township holiday events.”
This year, there will be food collection containers at every holiday event.
