The following organizations were served by the Food Drive contributions:

  • 31 Local Area Families in Need
  • 35 Robert E. Cole Senior Housing Unit Residents
  • Long Valley Interfaith Community Assistance Program (CAP)
  • Our Lady of the Mountain Food Pantry
  • The Children’s Home of Easton, PA
  • Market Street Mission in Morristown, NJ

These results would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of volunteers @ St. Luke “Staging Center” (Heather & team) and KofC brothers over these two days.  It is incredibly gratifying to see first hand the generosity of our community and witness how such efforts & contributions help to serve the needs of so many families and organizations within our community!
