August 20, 2020

TRENTON, NJ (MERCER)–Earlier today, several troopers donated 18,000 pounds of food to the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank.

In June, members of the Office of Professional Standards spearheaded a food drive where they donated 928 pounds of food to the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank.

Although the food drive ended, several troopers along with members of the Troopers United Foundation Inc. continued to gather donations. The troopers worked with businesses and organizations across the State to gather 14 pallets of food and personal care items.

Last year, Mercer Street Friends supplied families with 4.5 million pounds of food with the assistance of 2,900 volunteers.

Despite the challenges this year, Mercer Street Friends has continued to provide meals to families in need and this donation will continue help to feed families in the area.
