Thanksgiving Food Pantry Donations
St. Theresa’s Social Concerns Food Pantry is gearing up for their Thanksgiving food basket distribution. Last year they distributed approximately 275 baskets including a $10 supermarket gift card, and 280 turkeys. They anticipate a bigger need than any year before. Nonperishable food items can be dropped off at the back of the Church on Sundays or any day of the week between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rectory. There is a special need for gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce and canned yams. Gift cards to any supermarket in $10.00 denominations are also needed. Frozen turkeys can be dropped off the Friday before Thanksgiving (November 19th) between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. at St. Theresa’s Rectory. Gift cards and checks payable to St. Theresa’s can be mailed to Social Concerns c/o The Church of Saint Theresa, 541 Washington Avenue, Kenilworth, NJ 07033. Baskets will be distributed the Saturday before Thanksgiving between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. (November 20th).
If you are a resident of Union County and need a basket call the Rectory to reserve one at (908) 272-4444. Names must be given in to the rectory by November 17. We require first and last name and proof that you reside in Union County. Some form of ID will be required to pick up the baskets to prove Union County residency.
There will be no baskets given out without a reservation.
