MONMOUTH AND MIDDLESEX COUNTIES: John Merla, (pictured above) Chairman of the “Friends Of The Bayshore” and Mark Razzoli, Old Bridge Councilman and 12th congressional district candidate, have joined forces to raise funding to help Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry, and Old Bridge Food Bank, to provide more families food and supplies during this COVID-19 crisis.

Plans are to have a local DJ James Gallo, aka Sway Jay, who has donated his services to provide an American themed event on Saturday, May 2nd between the hours of 12 noon to 2:00pm. James will play in honor of our Country all American themed songs. He will be on the top deck of Old Glory Kitchen, 84 Broad Street in Keyport,

Facebook Live via air drone will bring this event live. Old Glory will have food specials all day long on Saturday to help our event. Merla commented,  “How it's going to work is, residents from all over our great state and county will have 2 ways of donating to help our food banks. They can drive thru the parking lot in Keyport and drop off donations. "There will be someone in the parking lot with a large bucket for safe drop off donations. You can also pick up a discounted pizza from Old Glory, if you want to, said Razzoli.  

A second way to donate is directly to the food banks: Keyport Ministerium Food Pantry 42 Elizabeth Street Keyport NJ 07735 ATT: Isaiah Cooper, Director 732-888-1986 and  Old Bridge Food Bank 1 Old Bridge Plaza Old Bridge NJ, 08857 ATT: Ana Feltz 732-721-5600 ext 2022

This is a great time for all of us to join together and if everyone helps just a little, we all help out alot!
