PARSIPPANY — VTSeva Parsippany held its second annual food drive from November 17 to December 9. This year the group raised a total of 1,500 pounds of quality food items, topping last years total of 1,250 pounds. Parsippany-Troy Hills Councilman Louis Valori helped the group unload the donated food from the vehicles.

The team delivered the food to Interfaith Food Pantry on December 9 and Joanne Rinaldi-Brashier, Director of Community Relations and Development conducted a tour of the facility.

Middle school and high school children from Mazdabrook Preserve went throughout the community distributing flyers and collecting donations for the annual food drive. The impact in raising awareness in the community, helped some people responding very positively.

Mazdabrook Commons community also did active campaigning for the food drive and some people became involved in VTSeva this year.

With team work and the efforts of sincere, dedicated volunteers they were able raise almost twice the amount of food as the group did last year.

In this holiday season which is the season of giving, we hope that with our team effort we made a small difference in the lives of few homeless families of Morris County.
