Starting in 20003, every spring season, volunteers from United Way of Essex and West Hudson and Agape Family Worship Center join together to distribute pre-packaged boxes of food and personal items to needy families. Typically over 100 volunteers take part in this heartfelt and healthy activity. Last year’s event impacted over 400 area families. Food was supplied by ShopRite of Old Bridge, New Jersey. In addition, United Way distributed various donated items, such as clothing and shoes.
Over this time the program has had several names including Doing Good on Good Friday, Feed the Children and Feed the Family. This year the program is titled SPRING INTO ACTION – RESTORING MIND, BODY AND SOUL. It will take palce on Saturday, April, 3 2015 from 9:00 am -1:00pm in the UNITED WAY’S parking lot at 303 Washington Street in Newark.
