JB's Landscaping 2nd Annual Charitable Food Drive
After a successful inauguaral charity event last summer, we are gearing up to exceed last years results and make even more of difference this year.
The physical food donations that we collect on the day of the event, will again to distributed to four local food banks in Blairstown, Newton, Sparta, and Hackettstown.
The format for the monetary donations will be the same this year with one simple upgrade we are very excited to announce. This year we have added many incredible rewards for particular levels of monetary donations. The rewards are listed on the side bar.
Why get involved?
Here at JB's we feel it is important to get involved in the community and last year's event was an incredible way to do just that. We spent the day at the A&P Supermarket informing people about the growing problem of food insecurity in America and offered multiple ways to help.
We understand that donating money to a random charity can be unnerving because you don't know where exactly that money is going, if the organization is skimming too much off the top, and because rarely will you directly see the results of your donation. To help remedy that problem we offer two options for people who want to get involved.
1. Monetary Donations
All monetary donations go to Feeding America. A nationwide organization fighting food insecurity in America. Food insecurity means that a person does not know where thier next meal is coming from. Unfortunately, 1 in 6 people in America are food insecure. Feeding America is an amazing organization, that not only works towards a great cause, but they run the organization very efficiently. 97% of all donations go directly to victims of food insecurity, which is one of the highest effiecency rates of all non-profit organizations. Finally, every dollar goes a long way. Normally, every $1 donated, Feeding America can provide 8 meals! However, until the end of June, there is a matching grant in place which doubles the impact of your donation. Every $1 can now help provide 16 meals to people in need! So you can see how small donations really add up.

2. Food Donations
The day of the event, June 29th 2013, at the A&P Supermarket in Blairstown NJ we will be collecting food donations. It is a perfect time to get your shopping done for the 4th of July celebrations. While you're at it, pick up an extra non-perishable food item which will directly impact people in our community. All of the physical food items donated that day will be distributed to to four local food banks in Blairstown, Newton, Sparta, and Hackettstown.
How To Donate:

In a time of celebrating our independence and enjoying the beautiful New Jersey summer weather, take a moment to think of the people less fortunate than us.
