Foley's Shop 'n Bag Gives Generously to
MCCC's Youth College Thanksgiving Drive

11/19/12


Trenton, N.J. – It’s turkey time for some families in Mercer County who might have gone without, thanks to the Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive sponsored by Mercer County Community College’s Youth College Parents Association and the community members who donate to the drive. 

According to Youth College’s Wayne Murray, who directs the SMILE/Gear Up program for middle and high school students, the group distributed 70 baskets of food on Saturday, making this year a real success.

Murray notes that one local business deserves special mention.  “We are especially grateful to Foley’s Shop ’n Bag in Hamilton, which has been donating a dozen turkeys each year since 2009.

“We’re happy to do what we can for those in need,” owner Joe Foley said.
