Manufacturing Cares Leaps Toward 60,000 Meals in 2023 

New Jersey Developer Donates $5k to Manufacturing Cares, Pushing Initiative Nearer to Goal 

Cedar Knolls, New Jersey: More than 1 million New Jersey residents go hungry each year—a majority of which are children. ‘Manufacturing Cares’ mission is to provide a simple way for New Jersey manufacturing companies to collaborate, broaden reach and impact, and further demonstrate the strength and unity of New Jersey’s robust network of manufacturing companies. Every dollar donated to the Manufacturing Cares food drive initiative will provide 3 meals for those in need. 

Thanks to a recent $5,000 donation to Manufacturing Cares from J.G. Petrucci Co., a New Jersey-based Developer, the initiative has reached over $17,000 in donations for 2023 and is nearing its goal of raising $20,000 by year’s end. J.G. Petrucci’s large donation will provide food-insecure New Jerseyans with 15,000 meals! 

Manufacturing Cares has already provided nearly 1.8 million meals to New Jersey’s food-challenged population, but it can’t end there. As the initiative nears its goal of 2 million meals by 2023, Manufacturing Cares relies on the Manufacturing community to help keep pushing forward. 

Contribute today and make a lasting difference in the lives of countless New Jersey residents. Hunger is still an issue—especially for our nation’s children—but the collective effort from New Jersey’s manufacturing sector gives our neighbors food for today, help for tomorrow, and hope for the future.
