East Windsor Township Mayor Janice S. Mironov announced that the Township is sponsoring a “New Year’s Food Drive,” kicking off January 1, 2018 and continuing through January 31, for distribution to local individuals and families.

Non-perishable food items can be donated through the Township food drive between January 1 through January 31, 2018.  Food donations can be dropped off at the East Windsor Township municipal building at 16 Lanning Boulevard during regular business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the East Windsor Police/Court Building at 80 One Mile Road at any time, and at East Windsor Volunteer Fire Company No. 2 at 69 Twin Rivers Drive.  Residents also are encouraged to bring food donations to the Township Reorganization meeting being held on Monday, January 1 at 2 pm.

According to Mayor Mironov, “As the holiday season and its special focus on good deeds passes, we want to remind everyone that the need for assistance to people in our area continues, and call upon our community’s proven spirit of generosity.  As we begin a New Year, let us remember our neighbors who need our help and support, especially during the winter months.”  Mayor Mironov added, “Typically, we understand that donations drop off after the holidays, and we hope that this special effort will help feed area people.”  Mayor Mironov added, “We encourage people to bring food donations to our Township Reorganization meeting on Monday, January 1 at 2:00 p.m.”

All food will be given to the Food Pantry at RISE and the Green House Food Pantry at St. Anthony’s Church, for distribution to local individuals and families.  Both are area-based organizations providing assistance to local individuals and families. Questions by the public can be directed to (609) 443-4000, ext. 240.
