in support of The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties
Food Drive started by Diana Sierotowicz

November 4, 2012 - December 1, 2012"Feed the Shore: Hurricane Sandy Relief Food Drive"

Please help our neighbors at the Jersey Shore as they dig out from widespread disaster and begin to rebuild their lives and communities. Without food and nourishment, they simply cannot move forward. Our area food banks desperately need supplies to provide much needed support and relief to shore residents. Every little bit helps. You can make a difference. Please donate today!

It’s easy to help! Just click the "Donate to This Drive" button and select the food you want to purchase to donate to this drive. At the end of the drive, the items you purchased will be delivered to The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties for you and you will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Please share this online food drive with your family and friends. Thank you for your support!

Thank you so much! We want people to remember that we would be in need of food even if the hurricane never happened. We are so glad that we (the community) are able to help run Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts as well
as keep the regular food bank efforts running. It is people like you and all of those who donated that keep us going and add meaning to "community." THANK YOU!

Please donate if you can! While the Red Cross and others are addressing our community's immediate needs, it is important to keep the area food banks stocked in the coming months.
