Pantry focuses on people power

October 30, 2013 by  

One year after Hurricane Sandy, towns such as Toms River in New Jersey are honoring the People’s Pantry, which is the largest and most complete relief entity in New Jersey.

Upon being established, the pantry provided the victims of Sandy with all the basics for coping on a daily basis. Most of the goods were donated, including food and household items. The People’s Pantry still continues to support the community today.

Victims of the storm that have a FEMA letter verifying eligibility for assistance can obtain food and items from the pantry. Donations are still needed and welcomed into the pantry to continue serving those people still suffering one year later. Paper goods are needed, including paper towels, plates, cups, and cleaning supplies. Batteries are also always in demand.

Other services available include art therapy, case managers, and a computer lab in the resource center.

An awareness community event will be today, October 30. The 2013 Happening List Bash is an opportunity to showcase brands, businesses, and groups through exhibiting at the event. Each exhibitor will have a six-foot table, and bash sponsors will receive 10 tickets, a vendor table, a one month banner ad on the website, and signage at the event.

Vendors typically use printing services to prepare materials used in a booth. Business card printing is a frequent project, as the vendors like to hand out business cards. Generating future business can be a result of branding and information used on a business card.
