Celebrating Our 135th Anniversary
In celebration of our 135th anniversary in 2019, we've planned a year-long initiative of giving back to our local community. We want to make a positive difference in the community that has supported us and made our success possible over the past 135 years.
Each month during 2019, we will contribute 135 needed items to a charitable organization serving our area.
- In January, we kicked off our anniversary celebration by donating 135 buckets of household cleaning supplies to Fisherman’s Mark Food Pantry in Lambertville. The Food Pantry provides food, health and household supplies to local residents in need. The buckets were assembled by volunteers from our staff and presented to Jennifer Williford, the Volunteer Coordinator at Fisherman’s Mark, on January 25.
- In February, we donated 135 packs of diapers to the United Way of Hunterdon County's Diaper Bank. The Diaper Bank helps to ensure that local families and individuals have an adequate supply of infant diapers and adult incontinence products. It also raises community awareness about the need for these products and advocates for policy reform to include infant diapers and adult incontinence products as a “basic human need” for families in Hunterdon County. Accepting the donation on behalf of the United Way was Caroline Scutt, Communications & Community Impact Director.
- In March, we donated 135 animal care items to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center in North Branch. The assortment of items included pet bed mats, pet bed heating pads, throw blankets, kitten milk replacer, and many flavors of extra-large durable dog chews. Accepting on behalf of St. Hubert's were Center manager Pam Fyfe, Bryan Phoden, and Rocco the dog.
