NUTLEY, NJ - Nutley Family Service Bureau (NFSB) invites the community to Sham-Rock Hunger on Saturday March 4 along the Nutley Saint Patrick's Day parade route.

According to Executive Director Eileen Painter, a NFSB volunteer suggested the idea of a food drive in front of the NFSB annex on Chestnut Street. The parade runs along Franklin Avenue and ends at Chestnut Street. The Nutley Irish American Association after party is being held across the street from NFSB at the Knights of Columbus Building, also on Chestnut Street.

Painter explained that Nutley Park ShopRite is loaning shopping carts Saturday morning to NFSB. The carts will be parked on the lawn before, during, and after the parade so that they community can drop off donations.
