FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- With the weather cooperating this weekend, the classic car show food drive/fundraiser at the Fanwood train station to support St. Bartholomew and Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM)’s food pantries helped both churches replenish their shelves.
The owners of more than 100 classic cars filled the train station parking lot, and their entrance fees were donated to the cause. By the end of the day, the event raised five pick-up trucks full of food and $2,700 to be split between the two food pantries, according to organizers Greg Kowalczyk and Ron Vojka of Fabio's Bistro.
"It was a great show and an incredible amount of food donations. St Bartholomew’s and IHM parishes are truly grateful," said Geraldine Keough, who organizes the pantry at IHM. "The need for food in our community has grown considerably over the past few months. We have been able to keep pace with the demand because on the generosity of folks like Greg and Ron."
