How time flies! We just held our first 2015 #CFAThanksgiving food package distribution organizing meeting. With your support, we plan to distribute a minimum of 2,250 Thanksgiving food package to local families in need. If we meet this goal, we can provide additional families with a Thanksgiving. Your gift of $49 guarantees a Thanksgiving meal and a weekend worth of trimmings for ONE local family: 201.569.1804 x25. email@example.com. More details to follow. #Thanks #Giving #Thanksgiving #SayNo2Hunger
Earlier this month CFA hosted a Site Volunteer Appreciation Week! Every day two shifts of dedicated volunteers assure that local families who are managing hunger receive the food they need. The first shift prepares the food packages and the second restocks the shelves. Since clients are scheduled throughout the day, both shifts distribute the packages to families in need.
Thank you to the fabulous volunteers from Lowes who worked two long days in 85 degree weather to assemble and post a secure 8 foot wooden fence donated by Lowes of Paterson. They also assembled a shed to house several of the Lowes donated garden tools including shovels, hoes and a wheelbarrow. Happy Days!
We recently launched a Food Rescue Program to help reduce local food waste and increase our ability to provide fresh produce to our neighbors in need. Using our new refrigerated truck, we are now able to pick up fresh and non-perishable food items, as well as discontinued products, from 12 area supermarkets. We can then quickly distribute this food before it expires. Thanks again to the Bergen Highlands/Ramsey Rotary Club, Jen Maxfield Ostfeld and Scott Ostfeld and the Richard S. Wolfman Family Foundation for making this possible.
Welcome to our Smile Pack Program
Smile Pack Program is designed to help encourage our young clients to exercise proper dental hygiene. With the support of four area dentists and local groups, we are now periodically adding Smile Packs to the weekend snack packs that are distributed to local elementary school children.
