“We thank each pantry for their continued dedication toward the wellbeing of all individuals in the County,” said Joe Sittineri, Executive Director of Jersey Cape. “We also want to thank Assemblyman McClellan for being on hand when we announced the donations, and for his interest in connecting his constituents with our services. We look forward to being able to further connect with individuals who we may be able to help in the Jersey Cape region.”
