Stonebridge at Montgomery Donates 1,000 Lunches to Trenton Area Soup KitchenMarch 29, 2019
If there’s one word to describe the residents and staff at Stonebridge at Montgomery, it would be philanthropic. On Sunday, March 3, residents, their families, staff members and volunteers from the community made 1,000 lunches for the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK).
Together, the Stonebridge at Montgomery community prepared peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and packed brown bags with juice boxes, fruit, a granola bar and candy – all donations from residents, their families, staff and the Dining and Resident Services departments at Stonebridge at Montgomery.
The next day, members of Stonebridge at Montgomery dropped off the lunches at TASK, concluding a fulfilling and exciting volunteer event for the community!
What Charitable Giving Means to Stonebridge at Montgomery
Stonebridge at Montgomery residents are passionate about giving back to their community, and the staff are always determined to engage their residents in meaningful events.
After hearing that a number of residents used to volunteer their time at the soup kitchen preparing and serving meals, TASK was the perfect option for a volunteer activity. Residents were able to help others while bringing them back to a cause that they were familiar with and enjoyed.
“It was so nice that this volunteer opportunity not only helped others but also allowed bonding with our residents, staff, family members and the local community,” said Brooke Swope, Director of Resident Services at Stonebridge at Montgomery. “We are excited to do this again soon!”
