BRIDGETON, N.J. — To celebrate Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service, members of AmeriCorps served the community of Bridgeton by delivering food.
AmeriCorps fed 48 families with door-to-door food deliveries. The food was delivered to families who registered for the program, and volunteers with AmeriCorps spent the day packaging and delivering the food, which was donated to the program by the Hands of Hope Food Box program.
In addition to the food products, AmeriCorps’ volunteers delivered encouraging cards to each family that received food.
