EAST WINDSOR: ‘New Year’s Food Drive’ kicks off

East Windsor Township is sponsoring a “New Year’s Food Drive,” kicking off Jan. 1, 2016 and continuing through Jan. 31, for distribution to local individuals and families.
Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at the following locations:
East Windsor Township municipal building at 16 Lanning Boulevard during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The East Windsor Police/Court Building at 80 One Mile Road at any time.
The East Windsor Volunteer Fire Company No. 2 at 69 Twin Rivers Drive.
“As the holiday season and its special focus on good deeds passes, we want to remind everyone that the need for assistance to people in our area continues, and call upon our community’s proven spirit of generosity,” said Mayor Janice Mironov.
“As we begin a New Year, let us remember our neighbors who need our help and support, especially during the winter months. Typically, we understand that donations drop off after the holidays, and we hope that this special effort will help feed area people,” said Mayor Mironov.
The mayor encouraged people to bring food donations to the township’s reorganization meeting on Friday, Jan. 1, at 10:45 a.m.
All food will be given to the Food Pantry at RISE and the Green House Food Pantry at St. Anthony’s Church, for distribution to local individuals and families.
Both are area-based organizations providing assistance to local individuals and families.
