It’s that time of year again. The leaves are turning colors, the night air is getting cooler and families are making their holiday plans. Unfortunately, too many families cannot plan their holiday. They are too busy wondering how they are going to put food on the table for the rest of the week but we can help.
The Annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive takes place on November 22, 2014 from 9:00AM to 2:00PM in the circular driveway at the First Presbyterian Church at Caldwell. Please help by donating a turkey. Canned soups and stews, canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, rice, grains and other nonperishable foods will be collected as well. No glass jars or bottles.
Many of our local grocery stores are giving turkeys to those who spend a certain amount. Please plan to donate your free turkey or purchase an extra one to donate. Last year, the Caldwell community helped over 250 families celebrate the holidays. We hope to help at least that many families once again.
The NJ FoodBank uses all donations to assist NJ families who would otherwise have no means to provide a holiday meal. When sitting down to dinner tonight, please think about those families and help out on November 22nd.
For more information, please contact the church office at (973)228-0310, e-mail us at FPC@firstprescaldwell.org or visit www.firstprescaldwell.org.
