We all know that fitting a workout into every day life can sometimes be a hassle. We may be too busy, have had a long day at work, or (let’s be honest) we simply don’t feel like driving to the gym. Despite the trials that we need overcome to stay in shape, our friends at Eze Fitness found the perfect way to not only motivate their members to come to class, but also give back to the community. How? By hosting not one, but two Thanksgiving food drives!

Members of Eze Fitness in both Brick and Neptune, NJ were encouraged to bring in nonperishable food items for the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. For every 5 cans they donated, they were given a raffle ticket for a chance a free month of classes. Members were also encouraged to bring a guest for unlimited classes in exchange for donations. The food drive was a great success, with both locations collecting more than 1,000 pounds of food each! The grand total of 2,200 pounds was enough to provide 1,830 Thanksgiving meals for New Jersey families in need.

With the help of Lowy’s Moving Service, our valued partner and a Wheaton Van Lines agent, the donations will be delivered to Fulfill. With more than 108,000 people struggling with food insecurity in Monmouth and Ocean county, including 1 in 8 children, the food drive is will help make a difference for those in need. Thanks so much to Eze Fitness for taking the time to give back to your community and help families enjoy a holiday meal with their loved ones.
