LMS Cereal Boxes- A Halloween Gift!

A great big Thank You to the LMS students and staff for their incredible donation of 575 boxes of cereal to the Montgomery Township Food Pantry!

The MHS Baseball seniors made quick work of the transport, sorting and counting. Thank you Coach Mueller and players!!!
This annual donation makes such a huge difference for the many Montgomery families using the Food Pantry to help make ends meet. It carries
the Pantry thru the Winter months and enables us to include cereal boxes in our holiday meal baskets in both November & December and to stock the pantry thru the late Spring .
The Senior Citizens who attend the Montgomery Senior Center also receive a box of Cheerios during the holiday celebrations! 
Extra boxes are shared with the area Food Banks that support Montgomery families with more needs (longer term needs) than our temporary pantry can handle.
Lastly, we give a shopping cart of cereal to the ladies at Daytop/Crawford House. This Halfway House for women, located in Skilllman, helps women recovering from addiction get back on their feet.
I am truly amazed at what a giving community Montgomery is! The Montgomery Township Food Pantry could not do what we do without this support.

**CANCELLED**Third Annual Trunk or Treat

Due to the impending Nor’easter and rain/showers predicted all weekend, we are cancelling our Trunk or Treat event.  Unfortunately, we cannot move the event indoors.
