Medford Leas Staff Support Back to School Food Drive for Food Bank of South Jersey – August 15th – 24th

Medford Leas Employee Wellness Committee has organized a Food Drive to help to stock the shelves of the Food Bank of South Jersey.
This is typically a slow time of year for donations, so Medford Leas staff are gearing up to support this worthy cause.
Drop off bins are located by time clocks on the Medford Campus.
Breakfast cereals, rice, beans, tuna, peanut butter, canned soup and stews, plastic bags, and macaroni and cheese are all items that are needed.
Your support is appreciated!
