On Nov. 2, a fire destroyed the food pantry at Father English Community Center in Paterson.

This program serves 100 to 150 clients per day - over 4,000 clients per month. The Father English Community Service performs a needed service to our community and, as good neighbors, Passaic County is organizing a food drive to restock their pantry.

Non-perishable food items are being collected until the week of Dec. 18.

Drop off locations include county facilities at 401 Grand St., Paterson; 930 Riverview Dr., Totowa; and 1310 Rt. 23 North, Wayne.
