MRT Social Action: Repairing the World in So Many Ways!
Tons of food to be donated to The Center in Asbury Park following MRT’s annual holiday food drive!
MRT member Dean Ross conceived the Shine a Light program by leading a group of people to install bike lights for local residents who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford them. The group, which includes congregants from St. Anthony’s Church in Red Bank, has installed more than 100 lights each year since the program started in 2016. The Shine A Light program ensures the safety of local residents on the road at night and continues to grow with enthusiasm and support. Kudos to Dean and the others!
A few of the recipients of MRT’s annual Christmas gift donation, led by Cheryl Gaudette and her merry elves. Fifty one families from Family Resource Associates, who wouldn’t have gotten presents, received gifts from our generous MRT members. From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve day, the FRA van delivered the gifts to the families, many children with developmental and physical disabilities.
Diapers generously donated from MRT members were delivered to the Jersey Shore Dream Center for families in need. Pictured: Jill Austin, Ilana Gaudette and Cheryl Gaudette.
