Turkey Donation Program Ends Wed., 11/21Posted on November 18, 2018
Montgomery Township is pleased to announce that we will once again work with ShopRite of Montgomery on a Turkey Donation program for Thanksgiving 2018.
If you earn a free ShopRite Turkey* (see instructions at end) and would like to donate it to the Montgomery Township Food Pantry, visit the ShopRite Service Desk and they will take care of you.
You may sign up to donate your free ShopRite turkey during store hours through Wednesday November 21, 2018. Visit the ShopRite Service Desk. You will need to present your ShopRite Price Plus® Card at Customer Service. The earned free turkey points will be deducted from your account and a turkey will be donated to the Montgomery Township Food Pantry Program.
Important note: Please do not drop off turkeys at the Montgomery Township Food pantry. We cannot accept perishable items. We have arranged a special program working directly with ShopRite.
About the pantry: We gratefully accept all non-expired, non-perishable food and non-food grocery and toiletry items. Items on our donation wish list for November include: canned tuna and canned chicken, meat stews, hearty soups, canned pineapple, canned pears, boxed pasta and jars of pasta sauce, mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, boxed cereal, laundry detergent, shampoo, dish soap, tissues, napkins, and paper towels.
We schedule appointments for donation deliveries and client visits to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of our clients. We do offer an “open donation time” on Mondays between 8:30am and 9:30am and Mondays between 1:30pm and 4:00pm and we schedule donation appointments on other days and times. On Mondays we have a shopping cart in the vestibule of the Senior Center where donors can deliver non-expired, non-perishable food or non-food grocery items and sign in on our donation log. This ensures that donors and clients are not here at the same time.
The Montgomery community is incredibly generous and we need and appreciate the support. The Food Pantry and Montgomery families having difficulty making ends meet are very thankful to have such a caring community willing to help in so many ways.
You can contact the Food Pantry via email FoodPantry@twp.montgomery.nj.us or by phone 609-466-1054
*To earn a free turkey, just present your Price Plus® card to the cashier at the start of the order every time you shop at any ShopRite Supermarket and you will be automatically credited. There is no need to save your register tapes.
