NKREG’s Pack the Truck Food Drive was a great success!
Mullica Hill, NJ-Nancy Kowalik Real Estate Group participated in the United Way’s 16th Annual Gloucester County Cares About Hunger Food Drive. Using our recently purchased box truck, we “Packed the Truck” with as much non-perishable food, personal hygiene products and pet food as possible. This food drive ran from Monday, February 22 and ended on Sunday, February 28, 2021.
We collected OVER a TON of FOOD! Final weight of all the food collected in the Nancy Kowalik Real Estate Group truck came to 2,196 pounds which will provide 1,830 meals! Considering the weather, which was relentless rain on both Saturday and Sunday, we’re very happy with that number. This number is a benchmark for the future Food Drives we expect to have.
What is even more incredible are the final results: According to the United Way and the Food Bank of Gloucester County, this event collected 6,608.30 lbs of food, raised over $8,000 and were able to provide 29,749 meals to Gloucester County Residents raising their total meal count by 14,402 (from the 2020 meal count of 15,347.)
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make NKREG’s Pack The Truck event a success!
Mullica Hill Friends School: Miss Patti Sanderson’s 4th Grade Class “Thankful Thursdays”
Miss Patti Sanderson’s Fourth Grade Class from Friends School of Mullica Hill chose to donate their Thankful Thursday collections to the drive, donating over 200 items!
During this school year, the fourth grade class has organized a “Thankful Thursday” when they collect food and monetary donations every Thursday. They have donated these collections to the Greater Woodbury Cooperative Ministries and YPATT at Trinity Methodist Church.
We’re so thankful they chose to donate their collections to our event! They were so happy to give Ms. Nancy the food and tell her about all the good things they have been doing throughout the school year. The kindness and generosity that these children have instilled in them will carry on throughout their lives. The world is blessed to have these wonderful young people!
