The Interfaith Food Pantry will be collecting donations in Morris Township on Saturday, May 9, 2020, and in Morristown on Saturday, May 16.
“The food pantry really needs our help,” Township Mayor Cathy Wilson said in a statement. “A lot of people are suffering right now.”
Items most needed include: pasta, pasta sauce, tomato products, cereal, dry milk (1 quart packaging), evaporated milk, shelf stable rice/almond milk, peanut butter, Rice-A-Roni, Hamburger Helper, canned tuna fish, canned meat and meals (ravioli, stew, chili), hearty variety soup, baby formula (Enfamil preferred), baby food (stages 1, 2, and 3), baby cereal (oatmeal preferred), and diapers (size 4, 5, and 6).
The Morris Township pickup runs from 3 pm to 6 pm near the police station, 49 Woodland Ave., in the parking lot across from the station lot across from the police station on Dwyer Lane. Place the items in your vehicle trunk and they will be unloaded to maintain social distancing.
“Special thanks to our police department for their help with this event. The Interfaith Food Pantry provides vital assistance to our community. I encourage you to help in any way you can,” Wilson said.
In Morristown, the drop-off is behind town hall, 200 South St., from 9 am to noon. The same social distancing routine will apply.
These efforts are coordinated by the mayors’ offices and police departments of both towns, Help MorrisNOW, and FLAG of Morristown/Morris Township.
