Donations will be accepted through Nov. 18. Financial donations can be made online at njcpa.org/fooddrive.

Non-perishable, non-expired food donations can be dropped off at the following locations:
The food drive is hosted by the NJCPA Emerging Leaders Council, which hopes to meet or exceed 2021’s collection of approximately 2,700 pounds of food and $38,100 in online contributions. Since 2010, the NJCPA has donated more than 20,000 pounds to the FoodBank, which serves 15 counties in New Jersey.
“Each year we are incredibly grateful for the amount of donations provided to help lessen food insecurity in New Jersey. Hunger is everyone’s responsibility,” Zachary Cohen, manager at CFGI and chair of the NJCPA Emerging Leaders Council, said in a statement.
Ralph Albert Thomas, CEO and executive director of the NJCPA, thanked members, calling them “extremely generous.”
Donations can also be dropped off by appointment at the NJCPA offices at 105 Eisenhower Parkway, Suite 300 in Roseland (contact Kim Condurso at [email protected] or 862-702-5634)."
