Paramus Food Pantry Drive During 4th of July Parade

Prepare to donate food during the 4th of July Parade for the Paramus Food Pantry. Paramus Sunrise Rotary Club Members in conjunction with the Paramus Friendly Neighbors , Bergen Town Center and local scout groups will collect packaged food along the parade route. There are Paramus residents who need this extra support and Paramus Sunrise Rotary has initiated this program along the parade route.

Vehicles from Bergen Town Center will not only be in the parade, but will also be stationed at two drop-off points for collection. One will be at the high school parking lot  and another will be at the end of the parade at Memorial School. Look for the sign trailer that will be seen along the parade route and have your food offerings ready. Paramus needs! you! The following non-perishable items are acceptable!
