Sadly, many Somerset County families are struggling to make ends meet.
According to the New Jersey Department of Health, more than 17,000 Somerset County residents were identified as food insecure in 2019. Residents can help feed their neighbors in need by donating to the 13th annual Adopt-A-Family program.
Last year, Adopt-A-Family raised more than $26,000, which helped provide hundreds of Thanksgiving meals to in-need families. This Thanksgiving, participating organizations hope to feed even more families with the help of generous donations through the Adopt-A-Family program.
Residents interested in donating can send a check or money order to any participating organization. Donations postmarked by Saturday, Nov. 19, will help the most amount of people.
Online donations will also be accepted. For more information about the Adopt-A-Family program, click AAF2022OnlineDonations.
