KRS to Participate in NJCPA’s Annual Food Drive

Please join KRS CPAs in collecting non-perishable food for the NJCPA annual food drive to benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey!

New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants
Sponsored by the NJCPA Emerging Leaders Council, the food drive was created to provide support to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey’s various programs to combat hunger and poverty.

If you would like to participate, please bring any non-perishable food to our offices by November 14.

NJCPA is seeking to collect 3,000 pounds of nonperishable items and canned goods, which would surpass last year’s collection of 2,900 pounds.

Why have a food drive?

There are all too many people here in New Jersey who have been left behind despite economic growth –the child from a low income family, a family often headed by a struggling single parent – the elderly woman living on tea and toast toward the end of the month in order to meet the rent – the working poor struggling to keep the family together, the unemployed, the disabled, the abused, the homeless.

Are some foods more desirable than others?

Yes, canned and non-perishable items are desirable primarily because of their long shelf life. High protein items are preferred. Please see the “Most Wanted” list.

Together we will make a difference

The assistance that The Community Foodbank provides would simply not be possible without the help of concerned people like you.
