Roselle Park Business Chamber Invites Community to Come Shoot “Hoops for Food”

ROSELLE PARK, NJ - If you like shooting hoops, then the Roselle Park Business Chamber has an event for you! The community is urged to come out to shoot “Hoops for Food” to help feed Roselle Park children.  

As a way of giving back to the community, the Roselle Park Business Chamber (RPBC) is holding its first donation drive by distributing Family Packs every Friday, up until the end of the school year, to children in the Roselle Park schools who are being fed by the public school system during the week, but may not have food to eat on the weekends.

The event will take place on Saturday, December 2, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Roselle Park Dental Court, located at 201 West, Westfield Ave. in Roselle Park.

Participants will be asked to donate $5 per hoop (minimum of $25) to participate, and various prizes will be awarded at the event.

“Giving back to the community is very important because it sends a strong message that as business owners, we’re not just about our own business, we also care about our neighboring children, and there’s no greater charitable cause. Every dollar you donate can hugely impact the lives of dozens of families and children,” says the RPBC officials. 

Citizens and local business and community leaders are asked to support this event.  The RPBC hopes to raise $12,000. that will go to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, a 501 c(3) not-for-profit organization to help them in their quest of feeding the children that need it, in Roselle Park. 

For more information call 908-259-5758 or visit their website at www.roselleparkbusinesschamber.org.
