 Please Help the South Jersey Food Bank with Food Drop-Off at County Environmental Center

To aid in the collection of food donations for the South Jersey Food Bank, the Camden County Board of Freeholders has designated the Camden County Environmental Center a food donation location.  The Center is located at 1301 Park Boulevard, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002.  The drive will continue through the end of 2014.  This is a convenient location with parking for drop-offs.

“We want to help make it as easy as possible for residents to drop-off donations of canned goods and other staples to help keep the shelves filled at the Food Bank, “ said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr.

The drop-off box will be located in the Lobby of the Environmental Center and residents can drop off donations from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Below is a list of foods that Food Bank can really use. We will request pickups whenever our bin is full and we are depending on the support of Camden County residents to help keep it filled throughout the coming year.

List of food to be donated:

High Protein Items Breads & Cereals
Peanut butter Breakfast cereals (whole grain)
Canned tuna or salmon
Canned chicken or ham
Beans – canned or dry
Pasta (whole grain)
Peanuts, sunflower seeds, almonds
Pancake mix

Fruits & Vegetables Holiday Items
Vegetables (canned)
Stuffing mix
Fruit (canned) Cranberry sauce
Fruit cups
Instant mashed potatoes
Dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, prunes)
Canned pie fillings

Mixed Items
Macaroni & cheese
Canned soups
Canned stews, chili
Ravioli, Spaghettios, etc.
Granola Bars

The Food Bank cannot accept previously-opened containers, repackaged and homemade items, outdated products, or perishables—e.g., breads, pies, cakes, produce, meat (fresh or frozen).

The Food Bank asks that, when choosing foods to donate, kindly consider the nutrient value so that our South Jersey children, adults and seniors are receiving healthy and nutritious meals year round.

Thank you for your continued assistance.

Hello Everyone,
     The Merchantville Garden Club is organizing again and we would love for more people to be involved! Would you like to help?  Or do you know someone who would?  Every year we plant and maintain at various spots around town... Ever notice the planters throughout the down town, planters at town hall, the garden at the corner there, the boxes at the ends of the bike path, the Merchantville Circle garden, and in past years Morrissesy Park, (which I understand was planted this season by a gentleman named Steven Gillis and other volunteers... Thank you, thank you, thank you!!) Or perhaps you remember some spots where planting used to occur, like at the Community Center for which, so far, we don’t have the volunteers to continue.  We would love to hear from people who are willing to help throughout the season... for initial planting and continued weeding and watering.  The more people that help, the more enjoyable the process... And the finer our town.
     Please respond back to me, or contact Agnes Madden at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

If you or someone you know is interested!

 Please feel free to forward this on, as I can think of many other friends in town but don’t have the e-mail addresses.

 Thank you!!  ...and Happy Spring!   Rich Buckwalter



Acceptance of Bequests and Gifts for Purchase plaques and shade trees






At the last meeting for the West Maple Task Force members decided to continue to hold meetings on a quarterly basis until such time that another source of funds becomes available to finance RDG’s professional planning services.  It was agreed that each municipality will take a turn hosting the meetings in its municipality, inviting task force members to attend, running the meeting, taking minutes and distributing minutes to members.   The rotation will start off with Merchantville in October, Camden in January, and Pennsauken April, and so on.


Special thanks to Mara Wuebker and the Ragan Design Group for all of the hard work on this project.  We hope to secure another grant so that we may continue to work with you all again very soon.

Subject:We need your help - trees

Dear Friends of the West Maple Neighborhood,

The trees that the NJ Tree Foundation planted along Angelo’s fence on Maple Avenue look beautiful!  However, we need some help to maintain them.  Please reach out to your contacts and/or explore your resources to see if we can get:

 3   50 foot soaker hoses

 1   100+ foot standard hose to carry water to planting area from shop


Maybe you know someone that will lend or donate a hose (if donated, they can be used for future Merchantville and Pennsauken shade tree commission plantings).  We want to make it as easy as possible for Angelo’s and Mike Carruth to water the trees, as lack of water during first few growing seasons is number one killer of street trees.  We will publicize people’s generosity – posting thank yous on facebook page, municipal websites, emails to stakeholders, and related articles. 


Thanks for your help.
