Hi Friend,

I know we all have causes that we work to support, and I truly hope that if you reached out to me for support of the cause nearest to your heart that I was in a position to help, and did.  I have been working with a group of my neighbors in Freehold who have been working since 2010 to support our area food pantries. These devoted citizens have been so diligent in their efforts that their successes have drawn them to the next level and Foodstock NJ is now a registered 501c3 charitable organization.  I invite you to visit www.foodstocknj.org to learn in greater detail about the organization, who they help and how you can help us.

Foodstock collects and delivers food to area food pantries throughout the year. To support its efforts, Foodstock holds 3 events each year. The flagship event, bearing the group’s name, will be held on October 19, 2019.  This is Foodstock’s major food collection event. I am writing to you today to encourage you to join us on October 19 from 1:00 – 7:00 pm on the grounds of the Freehold Independent Firehouse #1 on Stillwells Corner Road in Freehold.  There is no cost for entry, but each attendee is encouraged to bring at least 50 pounds of nonperishable food. In fact, for every 50 pounds of food that you bring you will receive a chance to win tickets to Giants and Jet games. In addition, if you bring more than 100 pounds of food, you will get to ring the “Foodstock Gong”. Finally, if your food contribution exceeds 350 pounds you and one of your guests will gain entry to “Club 350” which includes access to top shelf liquor, cigars and upgraded appetizers as well as big screen TVs featuring the days sporting events. The event will feature a succession of local bands, a bountiful barbecue and a beer and wine bar with water and soda for the kids.  There will be endless fun and games and will be a great afternoon for the entire family.

Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

Thank you for your consideration, and hopefully your support, of this very worthwhile cause.  I am hoping that you will join us at Foodstock 2019 because the cause is worthy of your time and your donation, but even more so because I enjoy your company and welcome the opportunity to spend some fun, quality time with you.

Please give me a call if you have any questions
