The Flemington Area Food Pantry is indebted to the Hunterdon/Somerset Association of Realtors for its extremely successful food drive Saturday, October 8, 2016. The Pantry received 1,002 bags for a total of 5,390 lbs. of groceries in this year’s annual event. The drive also collected $1,740 in cash donations for the Pantry.
The chairperson for the drive in Hunterdon County was Laura Millen of Coldwell Banker.
Volunteers from the Association collected donations of non-perishable food items and personal care products from shoppers at ShopRite of Flemington and Clinton and the Bishops Market, Kings Market and WalMart in Whitehouse.
Association volunteers also delivered the donated items to the Pantry where a group of teachers and staff from Whiton Elementary School in Branchburg helped Pantry volunteers with sorting and shelving.
The Flemington Area Food Pantry thanks all of those who helped make this event a success, certainly including the generous folks who donated groceries and cash to the Pantry.
The Flemington Area Food Pantry provides supplemental groceries at no cost to about 1,300 needy Hunterdon County Families.
