TOMS RIVER, NJ – The Toms River Police Department’s EMS IAFF Local 4846 and MV Silveri and Sons pitched in on Friday with a substantial donation so volunteers can continue keeping those struggling families in Ocean County fed. Boxes of food are lined up for the needy at Citta Elementary School, Walnut Elementary School, East Dover Elementary School, South Toms River Elementary School and at the 3rd Avenue parking lot in Ortley Beach.
As food pantries and agencies such as Fulfill continue to provide meals for those who can no longer afford to feed their families, the small business shut down continues across the state. Earlier this morning, Governor Phil Murphy hinted that might change soon, but for some who have lost their jobs and even their small businesses, it may come too late.
No registration or sign-ups are required. Food kits will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until 12:30 pm on Friday.
