Our recent food drive for non-perishable provisions was another success at the Shop Rite in Hillsborough! Many thanks to the community of generous shoppers, Shop Rite and the group of volunteers that helped at our food drive event. We collected over 1,700 lbs and this will help replenish our shelves and inventory of crucial household pantry staples.
