RANDOLPH, NJ – Residents of Denville and other Morris County municipalities can avail themselves of the upcoming Thanksgiving food distribution organized by Table of Hope, local officials, businesses, agencies and volunteers on Sat Nov 21, 10:30 a.m. through 12 p.m., in Parking Lot 1 of County College of Morris (CCM). The event will include traditional Thanksgiving fare such as turkeys, fresh produce, canned goods and dairy products. Hats and gloves also will be distributed for the winter.
The distribution will operate as a no-questions asked, contactless, drive-through event. Visitors will enter the campus via Center Grove Road and drive to different food stations categorized by food type where volunteers will place boxes of food in each visitor's car trunk.
This is the third food distribution event Table of Hope will have hosted at CCM in partnership with the Morris County Sheriff’s Office and Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders. Supporting organizations include Alstede Farm and the Morris County Chamber of Commerce. Approximately 60 CCM faculty, staff, administrators and students will serve as volunteers.
“We’re delighted to host this event to help those in need during a very difficult and challenging time so they can have a true Thanksgiving,” said Dr. Anthony J. Iacono, CCM president. “We’re proud to partner once again with Table of Hope and Morris County’s Freeholders, Chamber of Commerce, Sheriff’s Office, Alstede Farms and others to ensure people can put food on their tables. It makes us proud to be part of a community that truly cares for its own.”
The event sponsors wish to distribute 600 turkeys and are accepting monetary donations to help reach their goal. For those who would like to help, checks can be mailed to Alstede Farms, LLC, Post Office Box 278, Chester, NJ 07930 with “TOH Turkey” written in the memo field.
A holiday toy drive also will be held in conjunction with the Thanksgiving food distribution. New, unopened toys can be brought to CCM’s Department of Public Safety near Parking Lot 10. People can donate toys through Nov 20.
In addition to the Thanksgiving food distribution, numerous other services are available to assist residents in Morris County's 39 municipalities who are in need of food. A list of available food services, including food pantries, volunteer shopper organizations, meal delivery services and take-out meal services, can be found at https://hs.morriscountynj.gov/food-services/.
