Each year at the holiday season the Pantry provides clients with the fixins' for a special holiday meal. This year, the financial advisers at Walkers & Associates of Flemington decided to help. And help they did--in a BIG way. Saturday, they delivered 3.2 tons of food in 481 holiday bags.
The staff at Walkers & Associates has been collecting food for more than a month, and this massive donation is the culmination of that effort.
Not only did Walker collect and donate the grocery items, they also sorted and bagged it for Pantry volunteers to distribute to clients when they come to the Pantry for their regular provisions. And if you're wondering what impact this has, the Pantry distributes approximately 500 Thanksgiving meals each year. Thanks to Walker & Associates, all our volunteers will need to do is add a turkey and a few other items to the bags and wish our clients a Happy Thanksgiving.
THANK YOU WALKER AND ASSOCIATES!
If you would like to help, IF you shop at the Flemington ShopRite, and qualify for a free turkey, tell your cashier you would like to donate your turkey or other free holiday item to the Flemington Area Food Pantry. That's all you have to do. No need to lug a frozen turkey to your car. The donated items will be delivered to the Pantry in time for the holiday.
