The East Trenton Center serves more than a hundred families every week by providing bags of food to help people in need. This Thanksgiving, users of MeetMe, Skout and Tagged can purchase a custom food donation gift to help make the season a little brighter for those who need it the most.
“Food insecurity is a real issue for many families today. End Hunger NJ notes that 13% of New Jersey residents, or more than 1.1 million, face this epidemic,” said The Meet Group’s Senior Accounting Manager and Food Drive Coordinator, Leighanne Sadley. “Our entire staff at TMG has donated for years to help consistently fill the food pantry at the East Trenton Center and we’re excited to have our users participate from all around the world this year through our apps. America has a hunger problem and we all need to do our part to help.”
The Meet Group plans to make a donation for every East Trenton Center Food Bank gift sent in the apps up to an aggregate of $10,000 to the East Trenton Center Food Bank. The limited edition gift will be available from November 22nd through November 29th.
“The Meet Group’s donations over the last two years have been received with tears and celebration,” said Liz Leonard, East Trenton Center’s Director. “The company provided 13,500 items in 2018, which helped feed hundreds of people. My heart breaks for these families who have great need and when The Meet Group is so generous, I do not have to turn anyone away who is hungry.”
“The reality is that people are not just hungry at Thanksgiving or other holidays. They are hungry throughout the year,” said Dennis ONeill, Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Hopewell, New Jersey. “The additional funds from these donations will help the ETC serve their clients all year long. That means hundreds of kids in the East Trenton area won’t have to go to bed hungry every night and seniors won’t have to decide between buying food or needed medications. It doesn’t take much to have a significant impact on the lives of others who are in need. Some of the most transformative moments of my life have been seeing the grateful tears of parents who will be able to feed their kids because of the compassion of others.”
