In response to the impact from the government shutdown on federal employees in our area, the Builders League of South Jersey Charitable Foundation has made contributions of $1,000 each to the Community Food Bank of NJ and the Food Bank of South Jersey.
According to news reports, food banks in South Jersey are being stretched as more residents are seeking assistance with the extended loss of paychecks.
