Boscovs Accepting Donations to Benefit Local Food Pantries

Vineland, NJ – While summertime means vacations, camp, no homework, and fun for thousands of New Jersey kids, it can also mean that there will no longer be healthy meals at their public schools through reduced- and free-lunch programs.
Several local food pantries – and regional Boscov’s stores – are trying to help prevent local youth and their families from suffering from food insecurity. The Salvation Army of Vineland will be collecting non-perishable food at the Boscov’s Cumberland Mall location throughout the month of July. People wishing to donate can find food collection bins at Boscov’s in high-traffic areas, or they can give their donations to any Boscov’s associate to place in the donation boxes.
The Vineland Salvation Army chapter helps to overcome the barriers that lead to food insecurity; Salvation Army volunteers help area residents address educational, housing, and employment needs, as well.
Local residents are encouraged to consider cleaning out their pantries, and donating to these local food pantries during this summer food collection drive, now through July 31st, at Boscov’s locations listed below. Donations can be dropped off during normal operating hours at the stores.
