Food drive collects items for Ridgefield Park families in need

7/4/2011

Congratulations to the Ridgefield Park
Woman’s Club Evening Membership Department on their successful food drive!

The most recent drive was held June 18 and was utilized by local families and single adults. For just this one day, they collected four car loads of bagged groceries and collected more than $200 worth of donations.

Member Claire Hill said the volunteer organization decided to become involved in food drives due to the high rate of unemployment and the increased home expenses in the area.

Many clubs support their local food pantries and social service agencies with in kind and monetary donations.
