2019 Starfish Holiday Happenings-Volunteers needed!

Readington Area Starfish was started by a consortium of local churches and is a community-based volunteer organization that operates an emergency food pantry, assists local residents with emergency needs and provides holiday food to families in need.

Help is always needed to sort, bag and deliver holiday food. Bring a friend and join Readington Starfish at any of the times listed below. It is not necessary to sign up. All activities take place at Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Route 523 and Pulaski Road, Whitehouse Station, NJ.

Just have a small amount of time…volunteer to do a local delivery for someone who can’t pick up their food. Come to Our Lady of Lourdes at 5:30 on distribution night (June 11, 2019) and let us know you’d like to deliver.

If you have questions, contact Readington Township Social Services at 908 534-0974.
