ABCO Donates To Twin Oaks Food Pantry




Imagine not being able to provide a meal for your children. With poverty in New Jersey at its highest rate in 52 years with some 24.7 percent of the population considered poor in 2011 (Annual Survey by Legal Services of NJ) this is the heartbreaking reality for many.

To provide assistance for these children and their families at the start of the school year, ABCO hosted a food drive at its Willingboro and Mt. Holly locations. Together, ABCO and its members in these areas donated over 100 pounds of food to the Twin Oaks Food Pantry in Mt. Holly which serves more than 300 families a month.

Describing the support of its employees and members, ABCO FCU's Community Outreach Coordinator, Julia Bernd, said people in Burlington County were generous with their donations and Twin Oaks was most appreciative. "When we arrived with our donation, the shelves at the pantry were bare and there were people coming through the door. We were happy to be able to help stock those shelves. The folks at Twin Oaks were thrilled."

Twin oaks relies heavily on private donations to able to offer this service to hungry people in New Jersey. To learn more how you can donate food, gently used clothing, or personal care items to Twin Oaks please visit http://twinoakscs.org/services/food-pantry
