Stuff the Bus at Arbor Terrace

Arbor Terrace Teaneck senior living community launches food drive to keep area kids nourished this summer

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TEANECK, N.J. - Jul 19, 2017 - Arbor Terrace Teaneck is working to ensure that kids in Teaneck don’t go hungry this summer, by hosting a “Stuff the Bus” food drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on July 25 at the community, located at 600 Frank W. Burr Blvd. in Teaneck.

Area residents are invited to stop by with donations and to join Arbor Terrace’s staff, residents and their families as they collect non-perishable food items to help ensure that children in the area have enough to eat this summer. The goal is to completely fill the community’s bus with food, which will be donated to Helping Hands Food Pantry in Teaneck. Donations of healthy, kid-friendly food will be especially appreciated.

“There is a great need for food in the summer, as the kids are home from school and not getting lunches provided at school,” said Elie Katz, Helping Hands’ co-founder. A significant number of students in the Teaneck Public Schools rely on free or reduced price lunches during the school year; during the summer, many families’ food budgets can come up short.
