CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – County employees and residents filled 15 boxes with food that were presented to Cape Human Resources this month.

“Following Hurricane Sandy, there was an outpouring from residents and county employees looking for ways to give back to the community,” reads a statement from the county. “In response, the county started the program Cape May County….Helping our Neighbors.”

The Board of Freeholders presented the boxes at its meeting on Jan. 22. 

In the past, 30 boxes were given to the Family Success Center of Cape May County and St. Maximilian Kolbe Parish’s food pantries in Woodbine and Upper Township.

Founded in 1966, Cape Human Resources Inc. provides programs and services that educate as well as motivate the promotion of self-sufficiency to Cape May County residents who are economically disadvantaged and have limited resources. 

Among those programs are a food pantry and weatherization.

The pantry at 100 East Main St. in Whitesboro is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

People can continue to donate food by dropping items off to county facilities Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.    

The collection program runs through March 31 and items collected will be used to replenish other local food pantries.
