The gifts can be deposited in the “chimneys” in the lobby of the airport between 8:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M Unwrapped gifts and canned or boxed food are accepted in the lobby of the Princeton Airport.
The Mercer County Board of Social Services has been serving the citizens of Mercer County since 1932 and is committed to providing economic and social services to individuals and families residing in Mercer County based upon financial need. They provide services that will protect those that are most vulnerable, i.e. elderly and children.
The mission of The Food Bank Network of Somerset County is to distribute food and provide other basic human needs to those less fortunate in our community in a manner recognizing and advancing self-worth and human dignity. Working through our warehouse-pantry in Bridgewater and satellite food pantries, their goal is to help feed people in need.
They aid any Somerset County residents requesting help who either find them directly or are referred by public and private county agencies. To do this, they have professional staff members, an unpaid board of directors, and countless volunteers across the county who give their time and donations to help hem continue their work.
Here at Princeton Airport, we feel it is important to give to community-based organizations that assist directly within the community where we live.
**Last date to donate will be December 17th, 2023**
