FOOD DONATIONS

MONTVILLE, NJ – After you clean out a closet or a room, what do you do with all the stuff? It’s not a good idea to put it all in the garbage, to go to the landfill. A better way to deal with it is to donate it to companies, charities, or even individuals who can use it.  The next time you’re cleaning out, consider donating to these organizations:
