You can shop for groceries online and now you donate to food banks the same way. The Glen Ridge Women’s Club in support of the Community Food Bank of NJ is promoting a Virtual Food drive that impacts real families in the physical world.
Use the links in the letter from the Glen Ridge Women’s Club below to donate food wholesale style. Every dollar you donate is amplified giving the Food Bank greater buying power (e.g. $50 of peanut butter for $17)
Dear Glen Ridge Community,
The Glen Ridge Virtual Food Drive is starting a new "Have a Heart" campaign for Valentine's Day.
The Women's Club of Glen Ridge (Community Service Department) has forged a partnership with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in conducting a VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE. The Virtual Food Drive is a way of going online to shop for foods for the Food Bank (fun to do with kids) or just simply donate money. It is another impactful way to augment physical food drives. We began the Glen Ridge Virtual Food Drive just before the holidays in December and within one month reached 42% ($2,100) of our goal of $5,000. Thank you!
If you would like to help us, please visit our webpage at the Food Bank, www.cfbnj.org/grfd or go to our website anytime (feel free to bookmark) www.womensclubglenridge.com. You will find the Virtual Food Drive there.
If you prefer, you can mail a contribution check to us at 219 Ridgewood Avenue, Glen Ridge, NJ 07028.
Make checks payable to Community Bank of New Jersey and include Women’s Club of Glen Ridge in the Memo. You will receive a letter for tax deduction purposes from the Community Food Bank of New Jersey.
The need to fight hunger is urgent as it is reported that 1 in 5 kids go hungry every day in New Jersey.
This is a high-leverage way to attack the problem:
The Community Food Bank can buy $10 of essential food for every $1 donated. The food goes to local food banks and soup kitchens including 11 in the Montclair/Bloomfield area.
Please, join us in this fight!
