HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR MONTGOMERY FAMILIES IN NEED

HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR MONTGOMERY FAMILIES IN NEED

Posted on December 10, 2020

The Montgomery Township Food Pantry is seeking donations of holiday gift cards from local retailers to distribute to 50+ families who are currently relying on the pantry for food assistance.

“Our families enjoy the ability to personally select the gifts they purchase and, this year, feel more comfortable receiving gift cards rather than the gifts themselves because of COVID,” said resident Lisa Youngberg, who helps organize the annual holiday giving program for families in need, modified this year for the COVID era. “We also wanted to lend a hand to our local retailers with a ‘Shop Local’ emphasis.”

Two types of gift cards are requested in denominations of $25:

  1. Montgomery retailer gift cards, including salons, gift shops, confectioners, shoe stores, hardware, health & fitness, restaurants, etc.
  2. Nearby toy and warm clothing retailers, such as Kohl’s, Target, and Walmart.

Gift cards should be dropped off or mailed by December 22nd to the Montgomery Food Pantry, 356 Skillman Road, Skillman, NJ 08558. Email Montgomery Community Resource Manager Denise Crowley at MontyFoodPantry@gmail.com with any questions.
