Toiletries Collection for JBJ Soul Kitchen
All Toiletries must be received by 8/13/18
Help those in need in our community by donating toiletries for The JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank. The JBJ Soul Kitchen is a non-profit community restaurant that serves an in-need and paying customer. It empowers in-need diners by including them in the process and while they volunteer they learn their stories. They are then able to connect them to resources in the community. Paying customers affect change by paying for their meal and buying a Pay It Forward Card that pays for the volunteer meals. Donation bags will be distributed to JBJ mid-August so please bring toiletries to MRT in the coming weeks including the Beach Service on Friday August 10 at Seven Presidents Park in Long Branch. Every bar of soap or tube of toothpaste can make a difference in someone’s life.

Travel size shampoo/conditioner
