HOMEOWNER ASSOCIATIONS WORK TOGETHER TO HELP FOOD BANK
Old Bridge Township, NJ – During the months of May and June, several homeowner associations held food drives, coined a “Day of Giving,” to benefit the Old Bridge Food Bank. This event was coordinated by Council President Mary Sohor.
Over $5,000 in monetary donations were collected and seven trucks full of food were donated to the food bank, which greatly supports the food bank during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our food bank is always in need of and greatly appreciates donations. I want to thank everyone for their dedication and help during the ‘“Day of Giving.’” This was an organized event to help bring the community together to help a noble cause,” stated Mayor Owen Henry.
The following homeowner associations participated in these food drives: Cheesequake Village, Cheesequake Woods, Country Place, Deerwood Farms, Heritage Woods, High Pointe, Lakeridge West, Merritt Estates, Plaza Grande, Trevor Place and Yardley Manor.
The following council members also participated with the food drives: Council President Mary Sohor, Vice President Debbie Walker, Erik DePalma, Anita Greenberg-Belli and Mark Razzolli.
Additionally, Daniella La Conti, an up-and-coming senior at Old Bridge High School, demonstrated leadership and provided a helping hand during the food drives.
A “Day of Giving” will continue in July with homeowner associations who have not donated yet.
