Teen Leaders promote CROP Walk at their Temple

Teen leaders Jared Battaglia and Ryan Ferrigno from Temple Shalom in Aberdeen set up a display in the lobby to encourage people to donate food to the CROP Walk food collection. Our goal this year is 16,000 lbs. If everyone chips in a little we'll make that goal and all food will be distributed to two dozen pantries right here in Monmouth County.

 Thank you Ryan and Jared for recognizing the needs of those facing food insecurity in our local communities.  Love the poster! Have you set up a food collection at your church or school? Send us some photos and let us know how you do. All food should be brought to Red Bank Regional High School at 1:00 on Sunday Oct. 20th.
