Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School Helps Fight Hunger in New Jersey!

March 20, 2019 | 10:23 am | Written by

Matawan-Aberdeen (NJ) Middle School held their second annual “Battle of the Classes” food drive during the week of March 11-15.

We always love helping out with food drives at schools, because they are a wonderful way teach children the importance of giving back to their community. One of our formers interns, Cindy Sobieski, who’s also a teacher at Matawan-Aberdeen, helped organize the event. In just one week, the three classrooms that participated donated 1,775 lbs. of non-perishable food  combined, which will provide nearly 1,500 meals for their neighbors in need!

Whenever we need help with a food drive in New Jersey, we know we can always count on our friends from Big G Movers. The crew volunteered to pick up all of the donations and delivered them to the First Presbyterian Church of Metuchen.

More than 900,000 people in New Jersey are food insecure, including 1 in 8 children. Thank you to Cindy, the students & faculty at Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School, and to Traci, Gary, and the rest of the team at Big G Movers for helping fight hunger in our community!
