From the end of November to the end of December you always hear bells ringing, signaling the request for charitable donations. Since we’re celebrating Christmas in July right now, we’re also encouraging food donations that will be used to help feed those in need in our local area!
The first two things everyone thinks of when the holiday season comes to mind are presents and the big Christmas dinner, but not all of us are fortunate enough to look forward to such luxuries. In Atlantic City alone, the percentage of people living in poverty is at 34.3% with 1 in every 4 children in South Jersey going to bed hungry; these numbers are especially troubling when they’re so close to home.
Every family deserves to have a hot meal on their table not only on Christmas but every day of the year, too. That’s why we give you the opportunity to donate food to the Community Foodbank of New Jersey year-round at Kensington. In order to keep the Christmas spirit going, if you stop by and donate any amount of non-perishable items, we will give you a FREE $25 accent gift card for Kensington just for being so selfless. Although the ability to receive a gift card will end as soon as we’re done celebrating Christmas in July, we’d love for you to continue coming into Kensington to donate more non-perishables as often as you’d like.
You can make every day feel like Christmas to those in need by providing them with food for their families and smiles on their faces.
