BCSG makes holiday donation

The Bloomfield College Student Government (BCSG) lent a helping hand during this past holiday season, as the organization concluded its annual Food and Toy Drive by donating over $500 of items to Hillside, N.J.’s Community Food Bank of New Jersey on Dec. 21.

“When I was approached by staff member Jamie Shahin about this idea, I was instantly sold,” Student Government President Roydon Pellew said of the cause. “Even though it was the week of our final exams, everyone reached out to help the less fortunate.  I could not be more proud of our community here at Bloomfield for making such a great contribution."

Utilizing donations from College faculty, staff and students, the BCSG made an on-site donation to the charitable initiative to help ring in Christmas celebrations. With two locations in the Garden State, the Community Food Bank of New Jersey’s mission is to fight hunger and poverty in New Jersey by assisting those in need and seeking long-term solutions. Founded in 1982, the organization helps feed over 900,000 people each year, donating food that has totaled nearly $1 billion in value since the organization's inception.

“I have worked with many of the BCSG members since they first came to school here, so I know their passion for giving back to both Bloomfield College and to their community,” Shahin said of the endeavor. “I was honored to work with them on this project, and so proud to see their efforts help so many people this holiday season. They should all be extremely proud of what they accomplished.”
