Beginning Monday, July 29, local residents are encouraged to drop supplies at a variety of Affinity Federal Credit Union branches that will serve as collection points.  Participating branches include:

Denville – Saint Clare’s Hospital, 25 Pocono Rd., Denville, NJ 07834

The effort will be spearheaded by Affinity’s Member Experience Officer Katie Ona, who is a member of the United Way of Northern New Jersey’s Women’s Leadership Coalition.

“This effort will be a tremendous support to working families in Somerset and Morris counties who simply cannot make ends meet,” said Ona.  “Sadly, this population is on the rise, but their need is being swept under the carpet because they are employed.”
