Historically Red Bank CROP Walkers have always risen to the challenge. When we set goals they usually set their own surpassing what we think is possible!
In the past few years our Monmouth County Food Pantries have seen a dramatic increase in need. Last year one week before Super Storm Sandy hit we collected over 13,000 lbs of food which was distributed at a time of intense need. Walkers have outdone themselves each year and broken records for our food collection. Last year was more than double the amount collected in 2008. We collect peanut butter, rice and beans and will also gladly accept nutritious cans of soup.(with some protein in them please). The boys from Christian Brothers Academy will be there ready to sort, count and bag food for 20 different local pantries!
It's time to look for coupons, time to stock up, time to schedule food collections in your churches, your schools, your community organizations. Shrewsbury VW, one of our top sponsors, has gladly agreed to be a drop off location. Look for the VW bug and donation box in the showroom.
