ROXBURY, NJ - There are some worthwhile reasons for Roxbury residents to eschew the couch today and get out of the house.

Roxbury Fire Co. 2 firefighters are at the Walmart in Succasunna today for their annual holiday food drive. The firefighters are asking shoppers to buy non-perishable items which they will - later in the day - bring over to the Roxbury Social Services Food Pantry.

Also taking place in town is the Roxbury Rotary Club's fruit and pie sale. Taking place in front of the township Recreation Center at Horseshoe Lake Park, this is a big fundraiser for the Rotarians who use the money to fund scholarships and other community efforts.
