Local Food Pantry Receives Assistance from International Shipping Company this Holiday Season
RED BANK, NJ (Dec. 16, 2014) – Red Bank-based Troy Container Line, one of the largest, American-owned NVOCCs, today announced the continuation of its holiday giving tradition with a monetary donation to Lunch Break that will be used to purchase more than 2,650 meals for local community residents.
“Lunch Break continues to be an asset to the entire Red Bank community. One of their ongoing challenges is keeping their pantry shelves stocked, especially during the holiday season,” commented Michael Cadden Troy, CEO and founder of Troy Container Line. “We make this contribution in the hope that it will make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need this holiday season.”
Troy Container Line’s pay-it-forward approach to holiday giving aims to honor and thank customers and employees through community outreach and support. In addition to the Christmas season, the company supports Lunch Break during the Thanksgiving holiday and advocates for its outreach efforts throughout the year.
Having celebrated its 31st anniversary in 2014, Lunch Break continues to provide food, clothing and fellowship to community members in need. While in the midst of a major renovation and expansion, the non-profit organization serves more than 4,000 free meals a month at its Drs. James Parker Boulevard location in addition to making deliveries to home-bound individuals. Every month hundreds of families are provided with emergency food packages and clothing. It is this demand from the community and dedication by Lunch Break staff and volunteers that inspired Troy Container Line to commemorate its 30th anniversary earlier in 2014 with a $50,000 donation to the non-profit organization and its “Step Up to the Plate” capital campaign.
