In June, Team Freedom Cares helped the Food Bank of South Jersey kick off their summer meals program with Camden Kidsfest: a day of fun activities, great music, a magic show, and of course, nutritious food for over 100 children from local schools.
Sponsors of the summer meals program provided the day’s activities. Enthusiastic volunteers, interns from Freedom Mortgage’s IT department, created patriotic coloring books with room for a message from the children to our active duty military.
Children served by this program rely on consistent, nutritious meals at least once a day from school. When schools close during the summer, families facing food insecurity are unsure where their child’s next meal will come from. The Food Bank of South Jersey is dependent on volunteers to donate, pack and sort meals for thousands of children in need.
Freedom Mortgage is proud to sponsor the Food Bank of South Jersey’s summer meals program for the second year in a row. Our company is committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate and supports The Food Bank of South Jersey’s mission to alleviate hunger.
