We are so appreciative of the companies who so generously helped us to provide for our neighbors, and of our organization and our families who always come through for us,” committee co-chair Carol Moore said in a release.

“Our motto is ‘Caring About Community’ and that is just what happened at our organization on Saturday.”

The meal deliveries included everyone needed to make a Thanksgiving dinner, plus stock pantry items. Donations came from Sysco Food Inc., Teamsters 676, Comcast employees, community members and members of the Gloucester Township Democrat County Committee. cleared freezer storage space before the delivery to keep items fresh.

Make sure if you have pie you get it at The Meadows Diner. Although, I thought "Terrence Jones" was a tea drinker.

Thank you, Ms. Burgoon, for pointing out my error. I did remember reading the list of those who donated but got stuck on "...We are so appreciative of the companies who so generously helped us to provide for our neighbors..." That was my mistake and I will be more careful in the furture, however, my misreading does not negate my point. We are told that community members were among those who donated, are not the Democratic Council and Committee members part of the community? Carol Moore tells us their motto is "Caring About Community". I can recount for you when Democratic officials in this town told me go to pound sand over concerns about zoning practices in my neighborhood. They were caring all right but not about the community they are supposed to serve. It would have been sufficient to tell us that community members, which includes anybody living in Gloucester Township, were involved in this charitable effort. Instead this event became another oppurtunity for our Demnocratic politicians to pat themselves on the back in public. Methinks it starts to become apparent that only Democrats in this community care. I wish they would care less and govern better. Passing Pay-to-Play regulations might be a start to show how much they really care about us.
