In just the last few weeks, we have had such an outpouring of support from so many in our community. Here are just a few recent examples of what people are doing to help Toni’s Kitchen:
The Parents' Association of Montclair Kimberley Academy, Shomrei Emunah, and many others donated toys to help make Christmas special for local children.
Paper Plane Coffee held a raffle and raised $2,545 for Toni’s Kitchen.
The Ridgewood Avenue School, the Girls’ Club of Glen Ridge, Montclair Community Pre-K, and the Montclair High School sophomores and seniors all ran food drives and collected tons of items that we will use to create meals for local families.
The Deron School of New Jersey held a winter clothing drive and the students at Sky Academy came by to volunteer in our kitchen.
Montclair Diner generously donated several cases of water, while Crane Aerospace & Electronics in West Caldwell, and the residents of Four Seasons Cedar Grove, collected a surplus of pantry items through food drives they hosted.
Some enterprising local kids turned the recent snowstorm in an opportunity to help their community by shoveling snow in their neighborhood in exchange for donations to Toni’s Kitchen.
These are just some of the examples of the amazing support we receive every day from our community. Thank you for helping us meet the growing food need in these challenging times!
