Volunteers help serve Thanksgiving meals

Thanks and Giving to Our Local Non-Profits


By Tracey Hall ~

Later this week, we will come together and enjoy wonderful meals and celebrate family traditions. When thinking about the word “Thanksgiving” it can be divided into two parts. Many of us are mindful and thankful but what about the “Giving” part? What can we do for those who do not have a home or a family, for those in the hospital or in a nursing home or shelters?

There are many local organizations here at the Jersey Shore that feed the hungry and collect clothes for the poor.

You can donate money, a run-down vehicle or simply give home goods you no longer need or use.


Here is a list of Five Local Non Profits that will gladly take your assistance:

Fulfill NJ– formerly know as the Foodbank of Monmouth and Ocean County. This organization offers many ways to contribute from running your own food drive to teaching culinary skills and aiding in job placements.

Jersey Shore Rescue Mission– located in Asbury Park and tirelessly providing critical needs of the homeless in our area, including a place to sleep and a hot meal.

Holiday Express– celebrating 25 years of bringing human kindness in the form of music, food, financial support and fun. Their upbeat performances are not to be missed! Everyone of all ages will enjoy the spirit of this ensemble.

Lunch Break– located in Red Bank since 1983, they have been freely providing food and clothing and most importantly, life skills and training for those in need.

ASPCA– not wanting to exclude our furry friends, this organization works tirelessly to rescue and prevent the cruel treatment of animals.

There are so many more places looking for you to GIVE. Please consider a donation for those in need here at the Shore.

Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

  5. Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I
    was wondering your situation; we have created some nice procedures and we are looking to
    swap methods with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  6. I’m not sure why but this blog is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  7. Hi I am so excited I found your blog page, I really found you by mistake, while I
    was searching on Yahoo for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a remarkable post and a all round enjoyable
    blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but I
    have saved it and also added in your RSS feeds,
    so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the awesome jo.

  8. Thank you, I have just been searching for information about this topic for ages and
    yours is the best I have came upon till now. But, what in regards to the bottom line?
    Are you positive concerning the supply?

  9. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something which I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang
    of it!

  10. Howdy! I’m at work browsing your blog from my new apple iphone!
    Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all
    your posts! Carry on the outstanding work!

  11. I blog frequently and I really thank you for your content.
    Your article has really peaked my interest. I’m going to book mark your blog and keep
    checking for new details about once a week. I opted in for your
    RSS feed as well.

  12. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  13. Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!

    Appreciate it asmr 0mniartist
