CAMDEN, NJ — Several good Samaritans across Camden – including non-profit organizations and public officials – are making sure no family goes without a turkey this Thanksgiving.

The City of Camden led by Mayor Frank Moran, the Salvation Army Kroc Center, Cooper University Health Center, the Camden County Police Department, and others got a head start.

As did Palmyra High School wrestling coach Zach Stosius, who pushed his team to act selflessly and provide to their neighbors.

In a week, they received eight turkeys, a ham, side dishes and $140. The players and coach delivered the donations to Camelot Education’s Mastery Camden KAPS School on Friday.

On Tuesday, fresh food will be delivered to ten Camden families from the school system.

“I thought it would be a great idea for my students to learn the value of giving back to their community and helping others, especially during this time when a lot of people have lost jobs because of the pandemic,” Stosius, also a specials counselor at Camelot Education’s Mastery Camden KAPS, told TAPinto Camden. “We decided to put together food baskets.”
