NJCPA Launches 10th Annual Food Drive for Community FoodBank of New Jersey
ROSELAND, N.J. – The New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants (NJCPA) kicked off its tenth annual food drive on Sept. 16 to benefit the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. The food drive, which will run until Nov. 15, is hosted by the NJCPA Emerging Leaders Council, an appointed leadership group that addresses the needs of NJCPA members with up to 10 years of experience, including CPA candidates and new licensees.
The NJCPA is seeking to meet or exceed food collection of approximately 3,000 pounds of nonperishable food items and canned goods each year. Since 2010, NJCPA has donated more than 20,000 pounds of food items to the FoodBank.
“The food drive is a wonderful opportunity to have members get involved and help out in any way they can — whether it’s donating, packing and distributing the food or assisting the FoodBank itself,” said Ralph Albert Thomas, CPA (DC), CGMA, executive director and CEO at the NJCPA. “Our members are extremely generous, and we hope to see them all participate again.”
Food donations can be dropped off at NJCPA headquarters at 105 Eisenhower Parkway, Suite 300, Roseland, or at any of the following locations through Nov. 15:
- Cherry Hill — Alloy Silverstein | 900 North Kings Highway, Suite 100

- Woodbridge — The Green Group | 900 Route Nine, Suite 601

The food drive was created to provide support to the Community FoodBank’s initiatives to combat hunger and poverty. The FoodBank solicits food donations to warehouse and supply food and grocery products to charities across the state.
