From the Executive Director

TOUCH and MIGUEL’S PHARMACY completed the final event for calendar year 2018 by distributing clothing to hundreds of local residents at the “Winter Bazaar” on December 22 at the parking lot adjacent to Miguel’s Pharmacy. We were blessed with wonderful weather and the site was crowded with mothers and fathers looking to add to the family wardrobe.

Meanwhile, we will dive into winter and distribute foods every Wednesday at the Food Pantry site located at 549 State Street in North Camden AND fresh produce and dairy at Miguel’s site located at 3213 River Road in the Cramer Hill section of Camden. Please check our events calendar for times.
