Sussex County Technical School is the latest of the ten Sussex County High Schools to run a food drive for the Sussex County Division of Social Services Food Pantry.
Sussex County Technical School has taken on hunger in Sussex County. On March 18, 2010, they collected over 5,500 pounds of food for the food pantry at the Sussex County Division of Social Services.
Sussex County Freeholder Director Jeffrey Parrott was on hand to assist with the food collection and congratulate students and faculty at Sussex County Technical School for their efforts as the newest Champions for Charity.
Pope John XXIII Regional High School was the first to participate in “Champions for Charity” on November 3, 2009, followed by High Point Regional High School on the 16th of December, Wallkill Valley Regional High School on January 14th, and Sparta High School on February 25th. Sussex County Technical School is the fifth of ten high schools participating in this project, designed to help maintain food supplies over the entire course of the year and not just at holiday time, when both donations and demand are at their highest.
If anyone is in need of food for themselves, their family or their pets, they can stop by the Division of Social Services, 83 Spring Street, Suite 203, Newton, on Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. No appointments are necessary.
