Father-and-Son Team Help Keep Food Pantry Open
A New Jersey trial lawyer and his son, a wealth manager, have worked to ensure a local food pantry can keep up with the increasing demand it has experienced because of the COVID-19 crisis. Peter Till of the Law Offices of Peter W. Till in Springfield,and Harrison Till, a New Jersey wealth manager with Integrated Partners, learned that the Food Pantry at the Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey in Elizabeth was under increasing pressure to feed more families of all denominations, but didn’t have the space to store the necessary food, according to a release. “We have had a dramatic increase in the number of families needing support and we needed a solution,” said Elie Bodner, director of community engagement at Jewish Family Service, in a statement. “Our mission is to provide vital health and social services to the community. The pandemic has put a strain on our resources.” The Tills rented two large storage units for the pantry, with another one ready if needed. “And we will continue to go from there,” Peter Till said in a statement. Till also has solicited and received donations from manufacturers, including Kedem Food Products in Bayonne. “This organization has remained the calm in the storm,” Till said. “It is an honor and an obligation to help.” Harrison Till said in a statement: “Seeing the lives impacted by the work of Jewish Family Service makes this effort all the more meaningful.” Said Bodner, “It’s people in our community like Peter and Harrison who help us provide the support we have committed to those who so desperately need our help.”
