A message of gratitude and hope for our friends in northern NJ.
Thank you, to every group, family, and individual who, when faced with the pandemic and the economic toll it has taken on your neighbors, stepped up and helped out. You’ve heard all the stories, you’ve seen the videos. There are thousands in our area who are struggling with hunger, and more than a third are at risk for eviction. Center for Food Action has never witnessed a need this large, over so prolonged a period of time. We did not face this challenge alone, you were there.
Thank you for every dollar you donated, it enabled us to purchase and distribute more than $5,000,000 worth of food to area families.
Thank you for every bag of food you donated, every diaper, every turkey. Together, we have provided more than 80,000 food packages to your neighbors.
Thank you for every face mask, cleaning product, and package of PPE you provided to help our staff and volunteers stay safe as we continued this important work.
And, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered their time, packing boxes, booking appointments, making deliveries, and braving the elements to distribute food. There is no way any of this would have been possible without your hard work.
Together, we have accomplished much in 2020. It is easy to see the need for food and housing assistance in our communities. It is important to pause and recognize the incredible good that has been done because you were there. When your neighbors needed you, you were there.
We are not done yet. Together, with you by our side, we will take on 2021 and the growing need among the people we serve. We are counting on you
