Thanksgiving Turkey and Food Drive for the Community FoodBank of NJ:

TSTI is again the local collection site for the annual Drive for frozen, never thawed, turkeys and non-perishable food. Drop off in our front circular driveway on Saturday, November 20 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm (sharp)!  For your convenience, TSTI members can also place frozen turkeys in TSTI’s main freezer the week of the Drive. 

According to figures released by the Census Bureau in September, 810,000 New Jerseyans were living below the poverty line in 2009, an increase of more than 50,000 people in our state in one year! More and more people who have never had to ask for help before are turning to emergency feeding programs, including the 305 charitable organizations in Essex County that receive food from the CFBNJ (the InterFaith Food Pantry of the Oranges is a member agency of the CFBNJ). The turkeys, food and dollars you contribute to this Drive allow the CFBNJ to help these programs provide a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to their clients. The requests this year are higher than ever before. 

The need is overwhelming, and the FoodBank is counting on all of us!
