TASK is a vital service and remains operational in a limited capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic. There is no admittance to the soup kitchen except for designated staff. We are however distributing two meals to each person, Monday-Friday, 10:30am – 2pm from our front door at 72 ½ Escher Street in North Trenton.
With that in mind, thankfully, many of you have reached out to us, asking what you can do to help the people TASK serves. Thank you for thinking of us and your neighbors.
Ways You Can Help TASK
PROVIDE A FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION:
Financial donations are crucial to helping TASK now and always. Your dollars go farther with financial contributions as TASK has greater purchasing power and can buy two to three times more than an individual can at a local market. Plus, your donations are tax deductible. To make a donation please click here or the button below.
MAKE AN IN-KIND DONATION:
TASK is also accepting non-perishable food in airtight manufacturer-sealed containers as well as other goods. We know that some of our donors make trips to food markets or retail stores just for us. But even with the stay-at-home rule lifted earlier this week by Governor Phil Murphy, we at TASK encourage everyone to stay safe, limit your travel and when you do go out, wear a facial covering and adhere to physical distancing guidelines, keeping at least six feet from another person. We certainly do not want anyone making special trips to stores or markets on our behalf. However, if you have these items at home and/or want to order them through a delivery merchant (i.e. Amazon or Jet.com) please feel free to drop them off Monday-Friday, 8:30am-2p.m. at the TASK main building, located at 72 ½ Escher Street in Trenton, New Jersey.
The list below includes items we currently need most:
Winter Items for TASK Patrons: TASK is preparing for the cold winter months and is in need of the warm clothing and other winter items. Please click here for a detailed list or use the button below.
HYGIENE KITS: Full-size and travel-size toothpaste, bar soap, deodorant, shampoo, hand, or body lotion and one disposable razor in a zip-lock bag.
For all our savvy bargain shoppers, please consider making a financial gift before making a purchase. Remember, TASK can take your dollar farther because there are many items we can buy and get two to three times more product than individuals can at a retail store or food market.
