Bridges Wins Annual Day Programs Food Drive Competition

December 19th, 2019

Throughout the months of November and December, The Arc of Essex County's Adult Day Programs competed to see who could gather the most non-perishable food items for our Home Assistance Programs (HAP). This year, we had a new champion! Bridges claimed victory by gathering 166 non-perishable food items that were distributed to HAP families in advance of the holidays. For their efforts, Bridges attendees and staff will enjoy a pizza party.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the food drive competition!  Collectively all Day Programs collected nearly 800 non-perishable food items.  Our HAP families are extremely grateful to have received such wonderful donations during the holiday season. Tune in this time next year to see who claims the title as 2020 champion.
