Togetherhood™ Days of Service at America’s Grow-A-Row
Building Community, Feeding Hunterdon
Y members and friends are invited to join us as we give back through a Day of Service at America’s Grow-a-Row. We will spend approximately 3 hours on the farm in Pittstown or Milford picking or planting produce which will be donated to individuals in need. America’s Grow-a-Row has farms located at 150 Pittstown Road, Pittstown and 401 Woolf Road, Milford. The location for each Day of Service will be determined closer to the event.
America’s Grow-a-Row aims to positively impact as many lives as possible through a volunteer effort of planting, picking, rescuing, and delivering free fresh produce. Since their beginning in 2002, more than 7 million pounds of produce have been donated throughout New Jersey to individuals in need.
