We are so honored and grateful to be the recipient of ShopRite Partners in Caring charitable donation. During the month of September for ShopRite Partners in Caring Hunger Action Month, ShopRite Hillsborough was one of 40 stores that raised the most fundraising donations. They were honored on Monday where General Mills placed two associates from each winning store on their Cheerios box.  With the monies raised, each store had the opportunity to nominate a charitable organization helping in the fight against hunger and food insecurity. ShopRite Hillsborough graciously nominated us and we are certainly grateful and blessed.  Thank you to Wakefern, General Mills, ShopRite Partners in Caring and especially to ShopRite Hillsborough for your support and confidence in our organization.  Thank you for your generous donation.  We certainly are grateful and blessed.

Yesterday, November 22, 2013, we got the call and we were off to rescue and pickup 960 cases (four pallets!) of delicious clementines that we shared with other agencies doing their good work.  It was hilarious when we opened the back of the truck and one of the pallets came undone from a so-so shrink wrap job!

  1. Many Thanks to Bentley Community Services and all our generous providers. The program has afforded my family the opportunity to obtain top grade groceries as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. The money we save helps to pay down my debt and I hope to be debt free at some point. Dorothy and Brandt are a special blessing to the community.

  2. I am truly grateful and thankful for Bentley Community Services, and to Dorothy and Brant as well as all the wonderful volunteers, for being so special and generous! They reflect a kind and generous spirit. They have dedicated their life in the service of others. They work diligently to help our communities and families that are in need of a helping hand. They provide a wide range of healthy and delicious food as well as other things abundantly for the families enrolled. I am very blessed to have met them. They are one of a kind! They were there to help me in the time of need and they provided more than just things…they gave their love and friendship! They really go above and beyond to help others. They have heeded to the call. Thank you Dorothy and Brant for all you do! You are much loved and appreciated!!!!!
