Cedar Crest, an Erickson Living managed senior living community in Pequannock, New Jersey, held a food drive this month to benefit their neighbors in need. Residents and staff donated more than 13 large boxes of food to the Pequannock Township Food Pantry and St. Joseph Church Food Pantry in Lincoln Park on November 20. The Cedar Crest Values Committee sponsored the food drive.
"We were overwhelmed with the generosity of our residents and staff. This year has been especially hard for so many people, and we are thankful that we are able to help put food on the table for others during this holiday season," said Sales Manager Brian Cassidy, lead organizer of the event. "Thank you to all who donated and made our food drive a success."
