“Whitehouse, Station, N.J.-based QuickChek stores are hosting a Coin Drive through Aug. 7 to support local community food banks in their efforts to assist those who have been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Coin Drive donations will help supply meals to those in need as well as support various food bank summer programs and initiatives throughout the Metropolitan area.
Summer is a critical time for meal programs for children as schools are out and summer camps may not operate in the same manner as they have in the past.
In addition to the over 40 million Americans who struggle with hunger every day, an estimated 17.1 million more people will experience food insecurity during the COVID-19 crisis nationwide, including more than one million people in QuickChek’s region. High unemployment caused by the pandemic is also a factor.”
