SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Elite Performing Arts Center Dancers (South Ave. in Scotch Plains) hosted a food drive on Saturday, May 30, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Members of the community helped by donating over 70 bags of non-perishable items that they brought to churches for those in need during this difficult time.

"I am proud to say the kids were able to provide 74 bags of food along with water and paper goods to St. Bartholomew’s Food Pantry in Scotch Plains and The Mission Project in Linden," said Pam Cox, who helped organize the event. is Scotch Plains-Fanwood’s only free daily local news source.
