The Cedar Grove UNICO Annual Turkey Drive is a tradition in the community and has evolved to a family affair. Fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, classmates and neighbors all come together in this effort to make a positive difference in the lives of other citizens. Let's face it, the economy remains weak, unemployment remains at high levels, so families need help now more than ever. Let's give what we may take for granted to those in need as we can all then celebrate and embrace the true meaning of Thanksgiving.
The Cedar Grove Chapter of UNICO National holds their annual turkey and non-perishable food drive on the Thursday preceding the Thanksgiving holiday so that the foods collected can be distributed to needy families. The foods are delivered to the St. Lucy's parish in Newark, NJ.
In addition to donating foods, the Cedar Grove Chapter of UNICO donates $1000.00 to the Human Needs Food Pantry in Montclair .The donation is used to assist the Pantry to provide service to the increasing enrollment of families in need.
