Kids Eating

There is a place where people wake up hungry in the morning and go to bed hungry at night. These people are our neighbors. The place they live is called Trenton.

Make This Holiday Season Special and Adopt A-Family

The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) Adopt-a-Family Program is just one of our organization's many holiday traditions.

It is often thought that the holidays are the crest of giving. It is a time when families and friends exchange gifts as part of a tradition that showcases generosity and love.

Back to School

However, this year as our economy continues to affect even the highest income households, undoubtedly there will be millions of people who will have to choose between paying for rent and food and buying gifts for their families.
Sadly, these are the realities for thousands of Trenton families.

For the past 11 years, TASK supporters have helped make the holiday season bright for many Trenton families in need by collecting and delivering food and gifts for the TASK Adopt-a-Family Program.

Here is How You Can Adopt a TASK Family:

  1. After signing up you will receive an Adopt-a-Family profile. The profile will include the gender, ages, and a brief introduction to your adopted family. It will also include a list of requested gift items.
  2. After receiving the profile, we ask that you provide a gift for each family member and we recommend two gifts for smaller children, but it is entirely up to you. Our families are grateful to receive any gift you would like to donate.
  3. Deliver gifts to TASK between December 8th and December 22nd.

We hope you can join us in making this holiday season more special than ever.

If you are interested in Adopting-a-Family, please contact TASK Social Worker, Nakieba Jackson at or (609)695-5456 ext. 104.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
