SUMMIT, NJ - Volunteers from the Community Service Association of New Providence welcome a 300-pound donation of chicken at the Summit and New Providence Lions Clubs' chicken fundraiser on Saturday at the Summit Area YMCA.
Nearly 4,000 pounds of donated chicken were collected along with $1,200 dollars in cash, all in support of GRACE and Summit Area YMCA food banks, as well as New Providence families in need.
"The public support for the sale and donation numbers speak volumes about the generosity of our area," said Patricia Jacobs, New Providence Lions event co-chair. "I think people feel good about putting food directly into the freezers of other local people who need it."
Feed to Give, a central NJ nonprofit organization founded by a highschooler, Carys Law, makes chicken available for pre-order at great prices, and shares the proceeds with local groups to help support the efforts of food banks and other nonprofits feeding hungry people.
This time the Summit and New Providence Lions Clubs teamed up to make a difference!
