Three Cruisers, Three Hours, Over 2300 Pounds of Food Collected: A New Record

Resident Trooper TFC Kerry Taylor and Officer Russell Gingras of the Essex Police Department with Mark Bombaci and Chris Rodriguez of the Essex Community Fund. Please help them beat their current record at the next Stuff-A-Cruser event at the Colonial Market on December 16 from 4 - 7 pm.

The Essex Community Fund and the Essex Police Department joined together once again to Stuff-A-Cruiser for the Shoreline Soup Kitchen.  On November 18 volunteers were stationed outside the IGA at Bokum Center to gather food that will help prepare hundreds of meals.  They collected over 2,300 lbs of donated food, which beat the previous record by over 100 lbs.

Please come by again on December 16 between 4 and 7 p.m. and help beat the 2,300 lb record.  Canned, boxed or jarred non-perishable food items are requested.  (Pasta, rice, sauces, cereals, canned fruits and vegetables, soups, peanut butter, jelly, etc.)  If you can’t stop by during the events, you can also drop your donations in the Soup Kitchen Box by the exit door of the IGA.  For further information call 860-767-1633.
