Charity of the Week

Please donate to TBO’s effort to help our larger community by donating to this chosen pandemic relief charity of the week. No donation is too small. Thanks for your generosity!

Nourish.NJ (formerly known as the Community Soup Kitchen)
Making sure our neighbors have food and resources is the mission and commitment of nourish.NJ, formerly known as the Community Soup Kitchen. TBO has a long history with nourish.NJ. TBO was a founding congregation 36 years ago when nourish.NJ was started as the Community Soup Kitchen. For many years, TBO volunteers cooked at home, helped in the kitchen and served lunch. Since then, and continuing monthly until this pandemic, TBO volunteers have staffed and served lunches, frequently to more than 250 people at a time. Currently, as a result of COVID-19, nourish.NJ has suspended sit-down meals and free farmer’s markets and is offering bagged lunches, free to pick up for anyone who needs it. Lunches, as well as canned goods and other non-perishables, are distributed at various host churches throughout Morristown. nourish.NJ is currently unable to accept donations of food or other goods due to safety guidelines set by Governor Phil Murphy. nourish.NJ is grateful for the continued support of TBO during these difficult times.

Please consider making a donation to Interfaitoh Food Pantry, helping our neighbors. Click here to make a donation.
