Pipes of Christmas Holds Successful Food Drive Campaign
Continuing its long-tradition of supporting local and national charitable organizations for the last 19 years, the Pipes of Christmas today announced it collected nearly 300 pounds of non-perishable food items on behalf of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.
The FoodBank distributes food to more than 1,000 partner agencies across the state, including soup kitchens, food pantries, emergency shelters, and child and senior feeding programs.
Last year, the Clan Currie Society collected just under 500 pounds of food items that helped touch the life of literally hundreds of thousands of people through the FoodBank’s feeding programs and partner charities.
