L3 Academy: Collecting Donations for Human Needs Food Pantry and Mary’s Pantry


MONTCLAIR, N.J. – Help L3 Academy fight against hunger by donating non-perishable food items between now and January 20, 2018. Our goal is to raise 20 lbs of food by Jan. 20. All donations will go to the Human Needs Food Pantry and Mary’s Pantry.


Families – not unlike yours and mine – and the homeless are fighting against the cold and hunger. L3 Academy is offering three very easy ways for you to help:

  1. Drop off non-perishable items at L3 Academy at 1 Greenwood Avenue, Montclair during business hours (12-5:30 Mon-Thurs; Sat 8:30-11:30AM). Contact us to make other arrangements.
  2. Amazon us from our wish list of non-perishable items. Many are under $10 or even “add ons” for shoppers.
  3. Join our free chess play on Jan. 20 and bring a bag of non-perishable groceries. Our Blitz chess expert - Carlos Sanchez – will be on hand to help everyone have fun. Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018:  2:45PM Beginners (Grades K-3) or 3:30PM Novice/Intermediate (Grades 2-8). Registration is a must!


“Local food pantries have been struggling to get food inventory on the shelves due to all the tragedies this year that caused the normal round of donations to be diverted to other equally worthy causes,” said Yin Chang, co-founder, L3 Academy. “In October, our customers donated nearly 200 new socks during our Socktober Drive. We are hoping that everyone will pull together to help our and the surrounding communities to feed those in need.

“Think of all the children and families who benefit from just one person taking five minutes to donate. Then think of dozens of people taking the same action. We can really make a difference in a number of lives. We hope that people reading this will think the same.”
