A little about ourselves
With the support of our community:
No donation is too small! 1$ provides 3 meals for our clients! These women, men and children typically don't qualify for government assistance and desperately need our help. Please consider donating today!
Thanksgiving is always one of our busiest times! Last year, the lines, which extended for several yards, were packed with clients anxious to collect the makings for their holiday dinners. They received large bags filled to the brim with gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cake mixes and other essential sides. Without this service, our clients would most likely not be able to have a full and satisfying Thanksgiving dinner. In fact, the average cost of a turkey dinner for a large family is $50.00 and that’s not even including the desserts or all of the sides. Unfortunately, our clients simply do not have $50.00 to spare especially this close to the holidays.
Since The People’s Pantry is not directly affiliated with any Church or government agency, we rely heavily on the support of our community. In fact, prior to receiving some well-timed grants, The People’s Pantry operated solely on donations from community members. Our incredibly positive and supportive relationship with local Ocean County residents is one of our biggest strengths. We know that in times of need we can easily turn to our people, ask for help and be met with overwhelming generosity.
This holiday season, we are turning to our Pantry family once more because of the immense need in Ocean County. If it is within your means, consider donating or helping us.
