Mayor Carmen Amato would like to thank the following volunteers and staff for their generous help with our latest food drives and distributions.


Our volunteers offer to help make deliveries and sort the food at our Recreation Center, and without them, we would not be able to help those in need during this difficult time.

Special thanks go out to:
Volunteers Gary DeRosa, Maria Rosen, Lizette Palagano, Kelly Pepsny, Jim Blavit, Central Regional School Board President Lou Tuminaro, Alissa Vanim from Aqua, Joe Mielewski for your generous donation of gift cards, Tom & Dorothy Fitzsimmons, Lori Deaver, Berkeley Township School Board President Jen Bacchione and Lisa Soubasis for your generous donation towards food.

We also want to thank Berkeley Township employees from Recreation (Debbi, Mark, Felicia & Judy), Parks & DPW staff (Steve D, Steve P., Jordan, Bernie, Jeff, Antonio & Corey), our Police Dept. (Ryan Roth, Will Cullen, Sgt. Papa) and the Berkeley Township Police Department PBA#237 for the wonderful donation of gift cards to hand out to residents.

Did you see it?
New Jersey ranks as the best state to live in according to this report, but why?

Mayor Amato wants to recognize Councilman Jim Byrnes for making deliveries throughout Bayville and Holiday City and Councilwoman Sophia Gingrich for handing out food at Holiday City, and we also need to mention Conca D’oro Pizza for their continued donations of pizza for our volunteers and ShopRite for your donations of bags- when we ran out last minute!

Thank you to anyone we may have inadvertently missed on this list, but your help is appreciated.

If you would like to volunteer, please call us at the Recreation office at 732-269-4456.

Our next food drives are May 21st and June 4th.
