PARSIPPANY — Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany President Frank Cahill delivered $1,500 ShopRite Gift Cards to families in need.

Due to COVID19, many of the Kiwanis Club fundraisers have been canceled or postponed.  Instead of having our weekly breakfast meetings at Empire Diner, we participate in Zoom Virtual Meetings. Every member was asked to contribute to a “Breakfast Fund” to be used for a special occasion. So far we collected over $1,500 and put the money to good use by purchasing the ShopRite gift cards to be donated to families.

Cahill said “The Parsippany Food Pantry and the Table of Hope Weekly Food Distributions definitely help people in need, but there are items that just aren’t available at those outlets, so the members of Kiwanis decided to donate gift cards so they can purchase those necessary items (such items as paper towels, diapers, or milk).

Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany is the largest Kiwanis Club in the State of New Jersey with 78 members. New members are always welcome.
