Harvest Hoedown For Hunger A Huge Success

October 27, 2011

The Red Bank Charter School held a competition to see which class could collect the most food to feed the hungry. The contest was part of the Harvest Hoedown for Hunger, an event hosted by the Charter Community Organization at The Salvation Army’s Red Bank Corps center on Newman Springs Road. More than a thousand cans and packages of food were donated.

“This is a tremendous gift,” said Capt. Stewart Dalrymple, corps commander. “In recent months, we have seen the demand for assistance rise significantly. Just a few months ago, we were aiding about 30 families a month. Now we are providing food to around 50. What the school has given us will greatly increase our ability to carry out our mission.” Although the school’s gift is very helpful to the Salvation Army, Capt. Dalrymple stressed that the demand for assistance is still high and that more food is needed. Anyone who would like to donate can call the corps center at (732) 747-1626.
