We joined the Plainsboro family in 1999. Plainsboro is our community. In 2019 we helped sponsor Plainsboro’s Centennial Celebration. Annually, we partner with Plainsboro's Rec Department to provide a party in the local park known as Summer Blast—making it possible for hundreds of people to meet their neighbors while enjoying an evening of live music, face-painting, bouncy houses, and ice pops followed by a movie and popcorn. So, what happens during a pandemic lockdown? We party with the neighbors while socially distanced at a drive-in movie with buckets full of candy.
As much as we love the Plainsboro community, there are many ways we care for tangible needs on a regular basis in Central Jersey. But sometimes, we go above and beyond.
- In partnership with local restaurants, we provided hospital workers at Penn Medicine and Robert Wood Johnson with meals from March through May as they fought for the lives of patients battling COVID-19 and other illnesses.
- In partnership with the City of Trenton, we have provided over 1,000 bagged and hot lunches for children impacted by a gap of school services.
- In partnership with Middlesex County Food Organization and Outreach Distributions Services (MCFOODS), we provided food to hundreds of West Windsor-Plainsboro families in need beyond our regular food pantry services.
- In Mercer and Middlesex Counties, we eliminated the medical debt of 1,127 families (a debt load of $1,756,385) in partnership with RIP Medical Debt.
- When the Trenton Fire Department ran short on smoke detectors to meet their local needs, we donated 1,000 units to give to families in the Capital City.
- When the East Windsor Regional School District needed masks for kids returning to school this year, we provided 2,000 to keep those kids in that community well protected.
