Get out. Make friends. Meet people in NJ.
Let's meet-up with the Members of Team Charity to help the Food Bank of NJ. As a team we will be working in the Food Bank warehouse: sorting and re-packing food items, sorting children's clothes for underprivileged kids or re-stocking school supplies in the Kids' Division. After we bond over non-perishable items everyone will be encouraged to attend a late lunch at a nearby restaurant (always a blast).
11:25 Meet-up with the volunteer host.
11:30 to 1:30 Volunteer Activity
1:30 Meet for lunch (optional)
