The Crisis Ministry of Mercer County is holding their 10th annual “Valentines for Food” Drive between February 1 – 14. This is your chance to show Valentine-love for those in need.
There are a variety of ways you can contribute:
- Sign-up your school, congregation, business, or organizations and coordinate food and/or donation drives to support the Crisis Ministry’s three food pantries that provide access to healthy food to low-income families in need. Contact Sarah or Alicia at the Crisis Ministry to sign up your group!
- McCaffrey’s Supermarkets offer “Valentines for Food” for purchase in their Princeton and West Windsor locations to support the Crisis Ministry. McCaffrey’s will generously match shoppers’ total donations up to $5,000!
- Volunteer your time by handing out flyers and collecting donations at McCaffrey’s during the drive. For more information about volunteering, please see the flyer below (or the Planet Princeton article).
- The Crisis Ministry will play Cupid and send Virtual Valentines to friends and loved ones on your behalf — and support the Crisis Ministry at the same time!
This is one of the Crisis Ministry’s biggest drives of the year — last year it resulted in 10.6 tons of donated food for our pantry shelves and another $12,000+ in monetary donations. Please help to make this year a success too.
If you are not familiar with the Crisis Ministry, it is a non-sectarian organization that helps provide housing, food and work-devleopment to people in Mercer County. They are an amazing organization — read more about them.
