STAFFORD — Thanks from the Manahawkin Elks to all those who donated to our Food Drive. This was a very successful event and you made it possible. We truly appreciate the deep concern for our community as demonstrated by the number of donations we received.

There are 780 lbs of food items and also some personal care items donated. These items are being split between St. Mary’s Food Pantry in Barnegat run by the St Vincent de Paul Society and the Human Concerns Food Pantry at St. Francis on LBI. Thanks again for making this a wonderful community to be a part of.

The volunteers involved include Sharon McGovern (Chair), Jack Milne, Midge Czerwonka, Bruno Czerwonka ER, Rose Sook, Michele Farrell, Tom Farrell, Barbara Raisch, Dave Raisch, Steve Cook, Gary Lee.
