Interact Club Conducts Successful Canned Food Drive

Posted April 3rd, 2012


From March 12 through March 28, the Interact Club collected canned goods for the Jewish Family Services facility in Margate, NJ. During their visit in November when they reorganized the pantry stock, the group learned that donations wane significantly once the cold of winter breaks.  At that time, they promised to help out in the spring.  On March 28, a small group of Interact Club members traveled to the Jewish Family Services facility to deliver the collected canned goods and to work in their food pantry.  Club president, Michael Greenman, coordinated the activity.  The JFS Food Pantry serves residents in Atlantic county.   Upon our arrival, Leigh Turner, the Community Initiatives Coordinator, was thrilled with the Prep’s continued support.  She greeted the group warmly and told the boys that they had collected enough food to feed  approximately 200 families over the upcoming holidays.  This statistic was humbling. The boys felt pride as a result.
