2017 VALENTINES FOR FOOD DRIVE FEEDS HUNGRY FAMILIES
Arm In Arm’s annual Valentines for Food is underway, continuing through February 14. The community-wide food and fundraising drive is aimed at keeping the organization’s food shelves filled while raising awareness of hunger in Mercer County.
“Families will visit Arm In Arm’s pantries over 21,000 times in 2017,“ said Carolyn Biondi, Arm In Arm’s Executive Director. “Every time we welcome a customer into one of our pantries, we are grateful to our community for making it possible.”
The drive’s lead supporters are McCaffrey’s Supermarkets, the Princeton Public Schools and other area schools, and area congregations. Valentines for Food offers several ways for individuals and groups to participate:
- Purchase a $4.99 “Valentine for Food” at McCaffrey’s in Princeton and West Windsor. McCaffrey’s will match it, dollar for dollar, to feed a household for a whole day. It will match total donations up to $5,000.
- Sign up at Arm In Arm for a volunteer shift at a McCaffrey’s community outreach table
- Hold a food drive — find details at www.arminarm.org
- Send “Virtual Valentines” for $10 each to friends or loved ones or make larger gifts at www.arminarm.org/donate
