I want to take a moment to say a very special thank you to everyone who donated food last week so that others will not go hungry. Continuing a tradition that began in 2010, many residents of the Woodmere neighborhood of Eatontown once again participated in the Neighbors Helping Neighbors Food Drive which was sponsored by the Woodmere Civic Association. Originally the idea was conceived in remembrance of 9-11-01 and the lives lost that day. Because of the outstanding response that first year, the food drive has continued that past two years in conjunction with the 9/11 observance.
Non perishables were collected from very generous neighborhood residents on September 8th and 9th and delivered to the Eatontown Food Co-Op by my wife Kathleen and I. Joel Stark, Director of the Co-Op noted that the organization is currently supplying food to between 120 and 130 Eatontown Residents. For anyone that wishes to contribute non perishables or make a cash donation (which is than used to purchase additional food), note that the Co-Op is open every other Wednesday from Noon to 3 PM. The next dates the Co-op is open would be on September 26 and October 10. The Eatontown Food Co-op is located at 15 Meridian Rd. (left side of building), in Eatontown.
