Sponsored by the RAINE Foundation and the parishes of St. Benedict and St. Clement.
Do you know of a someone that needs a little help with groceries this week? Tell them to call the RAINE Foundation Thursday, May 7 to reserve a spot at a special mobile food pickup Friday, May 8 in Holmdel, sponsored by the parishes of St. Benedict, Holmdel and St. Clement, Matawan. This is how it works: Callers will be given a time slot and instructions when they pre-register. When they arrive at St. Benedict Friday, volunteers will place groceries in the car. Social distancing will be maintained.
Nobody should be embarrassed to call, said RAINE’s Patti Dickens, who has been pre-registering plenty first-time food seekers this week. “My response is, we are not here to judge you. We are all in this together. And second, we are here to help, that’s why we exist.”
The number to call to pre-register between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday, May 7 is 732-865-3555.
