Mt. Olive Manor Residents Recognized as Major Donors in Food Collection Competition
Residents of Mt. Olive Manor and Mt. Olive Manor II came together to collect shopping carts full of food to be donated to those in need. Residents were recognized as major donors to this year’s McMATCH (Morris County Municipal Action to Curb Hunger) program.
Karen Feldman, social services coordinator at Mount Olive Manor coordinated efforts, getting residents involved in the great cause. “ We are so pleased that our residents take on an active role in the community, embracing the mission of LSMNJ- helping those in need,” Feldman explained.
Businesses and residents throughout the township collected 7,128 pounds of food to be donated, taking first place in this year’s McMATCH program. The donated food was then distributed to the pantry at Abiding Peace Lutheran Church in Budd Lake and the Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry.
The McMATCH program was created to help provide assistance to those in need throughout Morris County.
