HAMMONTON – Members of the Hammonton Rotary Club were among the volunteers on hand at the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry Saturday, Nov. 23 distributing turkeys and Thanksgiving food baskets to local families in need. The Hammonton Rotary Club donated 160 turkeys to support this year’s Thanksgiving food distribution.

For several years the Hammonton Rotary Club has supported the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, located in the basement of the St. Joseph Convent in Hammonton, with donations and by staffing the operation on the first Thursday of each month.

Volunteers from Rotary and other local organizations help make sure that hundreds of local families have the basic necessities of life when they need them most.

“Without the Rotary Club’s support, we could not run as effectively as we do,” said Ed Muller, director of the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, who added that’s Rotary’s turkey donation made the Thanksgiving food distribution possible.

It was also made possible through the generosity of countless people in the Hammonton community who support the Rotary Club through their donations and by patronizing Hammonton Rotary Club fundraisers.

As Thanksgiving approaches we are grateful for our blessings and to all who help make the Hammonton Rotary Club’s continued support of the less fortunate among us possible.
