‘Season of Giving’ Food Drive Highlights WB Holiday Season


The ‘Season of Giving’ food drive is underway at all of the WB holiday events, concerts and programs.  More than ever, we are seeking food donations for the Woodbridge Township food pantries that provide for the hungry throughout the holiday season and into the New Year.  We have set a goal to collect at least 10,000 pounds of non-perishable food for the ‘Season of Giving’ holiday food drive by the end of the year - food that will be distributed by our local food pantries as they work to ensure that Township residents receive much needed supplies.  We are once again encouraging our always generous Township residents and visitors to donate a can… or two… or three… of non-perishable food to help neighbors and families experience a healthy and happy holiday
