UNION—Help check out hunger this holiday season with donations to a food drive being sponsored by the Libraries of Union County.
From Dec. 1 through Dec. 18, the Union Public Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items to benefit the New Jersey Community Food Bank and other local food pantries. Collection bins will be located at both the Main Library and the Vauxhall Branch. All of all donations will be sent to these food banks.
During these tough economic times, many people in New Jersey have been left behind; low income families; struggling single parents; the elderly on a fixed income; the unemployed. The New Jersey Community Food Bank assists these families by supplying food to over 1,500 non-profit charities in 19 counties, including soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, local food banks, and after school programs and senior centers.
Visit the Union Public Library and its Vauxhall Branch this holiday season and help check out hunger by dropping off non-perishable food items. The food items most urgently needed are: canned meat and fish; canned soups and stews; peanut butter in plastic jars; boxed pasta and rice; powdered milk; infant formula; and canned fruit and vegetables.
