Help Feed the Needy with our Have a Heart

Daily Giving Calendar


Valentine’s Day is a time for showing your compassion and appreciation to family members, friends, and others in your community. Warm more hearts this winter by helping feed other residents in Middlesex County who are struggling and in need of food. By setting aside just one item of food a day over the coming weeks, your food collection can help others in so many ways. Use our Daily Have a Heart Giving Calendar to help organize your collection and remind yourself how much of a difference you can make. It’s so easy and you’ll feel great knowing you helped make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate.
