Don't Know What Summer Stock Is? 
That's the day we collect all sorts of dry goods, such as paper towels, toilet paper, etc.,  household cleaning products, and canned goods, to help restock food pantry shelves. 
The event is sponsored by our friends at Advanced Disposal to aid the Northfield Township Food Pantry. 
Supplies tend to be depleted during the summer months, when most of us are busy having summer fun. So join us in thinking about those less fortunate as we stuff a vehicle to the roof! 

Kids of all ages can explore a natural-gas powered recycling collection truck and be sure to honk the horn!
A Big THANK YOU! to all who participate.
