NJMET Thanksgiving Charity Drive for Eva's Kitchen and Oasis Haven for Women
NJMET Inc. holds the laboratory’s 17th Annual Thanksgiving Charity Drive for Eva’s Kitchen and The Oasis Haven for Woman and Children of Paterson, NJ.
NJMET, Inc., for the past 17 years, sponsors a food drive at Thanksgiving to support the Eva’s Kitchen. The Thanksgiving project is just one of the charitable drives undertaken throughout the year by NJMET.
“It has been a sincere pleasure to encourage everyone in our area to contribute canned goods and other food products to help feed the homeless and hungry in the Passaic County area of New Jersey for 17 years." said Joseph Federico from the company's headquarters located in Clifton NJ.
Each year, NJMET also holds an internal raffle to help raise money to bring apple and pumpkin pies to the people of the Oasis Haven for Woman and Children of Paterson New Jersey. “The raffle is always a lot of fun for our employees,” Mr. Federico added.
Anyone wishing to contribute to the food drive can drop off canned goods at NJMET Inc.’s headquarters at 1240 Main Ave., Clifton NJ. (NJ MET will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 26 and 27 for the holiday.) Donations will be accepted for a week after the Thanksgiving holiday.
NJMET employees will personally deliver all of the donated goods to Eva’s Kitchen and Oasis Haven in Paterson, NJ on the day before Thanksgiving. They will follow-up with a post-Thanksgiving delivery of food donated after Wednesday, November 25th.
Eva’s Kitchen is part of Eva's Village, a progressive and comprehensive non-profit social service organization dedicated to fighting homelessness and poverty. Their mission is to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, treat the addicted and provide medical and dental care to the poor with respect for the human dignity of each individual.
