MONROE TOWNSHIP, NJ - The Immaculate Conception School bus will be parked in the lot of the Stop & Shop in the Concordia Shopping Center on Saturday, November 11 from 11 a.m until 3 p.m. Residents are invited to come and stuff the bus with non-perishable food to help all members of the surrounding communities enjoy a Thanksgiving meal this holiday season.

The donations will go to the Alice's CUP Food Pantry in Spotswood, which feeds any Middlesex County resident in need. However, the goal of the drive is to collect a bus load of food that can benefit other local food pantry shelves as well.

The drive will be collecting:
