It can be difficult to find time to work out during the holiday season, but our friends from Eze Fitness found a perfect solution to keep their members motivated while also giving back to their local community.
From October 28-November 23, Eze Fitness hosted a Thanksgiving Food Drive at their locations in Brick, Howell, and Neptune, NJ. Members were asked to bring donations of stuffing, cranberry sauce, instant potatoes, canned vegetables, and other Thanksgiving essentials to help provide holiday meals for their neighbors in need. As an added incentive to donate, members received one raffle ticket for a chance to win a free month's membership for every 5 items they donated!
Together, all 3 locations collected a total of 6,820 pounds of food, which was 4,600 lbs. more than they collected in 2018 and was enough to provide nearly 5,900 meals. Our partners from Lowy's Moving Service, a Wheaton Worldwide agent, delivered all the donations to Fulfill.
More than 108,000 people in Monmouth and Ocean county are food insecure, including 1 in 8 children. Thank you to Eze Fitness and Lowy's Moving Service for your continued support!
