There are plenty of signs that the holidays are in full swing in our office.
The appearance of Christmas lights strung along cubicles. More tasty temptations to share at the common snack table.
And the big blue plastic bins in both of our lobbies, for employees, customers and the general public to donate non-perishable food items.
Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem Counties are home to 196,000 food insecure people that cannot afford to eat nutritiously on a regular basis. In the four-county area, more than 18.1 percent of children face food insecurity, according to the Food Bank of South Jersey.
Feed Our Neighbors, our holiday food drive, runs through Tuesday, Jan. 2. Drop off non-perishable food items in our lobby at 301 Cuthbert Blvd., across from Camden Catholic, weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (excluding holidays).
Donations will be transported to the Food Bank throughout the month, to help the Food Bank meet holiday needs and restock empty shelves.
