Ocean County Hunger Relief is collecting children’s clothes, coats, & shoes (sizes infant to teen), book bags, and lunch boxes for needy children in Ocean County. There is a desperate need because the organization almost never has these items. Especially needed are baby items such as diapers, wipes, shampoo, baby wash, etc. The children receiving the donations are either very poor or homeless. Donations may be dropped off at the Hunger Relief office on North Main Street in Toms River or by calling (732) 505-HELP or by visiting ochungerrelief.org.
