ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – For the last six years, the New Jersey, New York State and Pennsylvania associations of REALTORS® have hosted an annual food drive for the Atlantic City Rescue Mission (ACRM) during the Triple Play REALTOR® Convention and Trade Expo. REALTORS® and attendees coming to the Atlantic City Convention Center for Triple Play on December 5-8, 2016 are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items, canned goods, personal care items or monetary donations to help those in need this holiday season.
Located across the street from the Convention Center, the ACRM has been has been serving those who are homeless and/or in need since 1964. The mission serves about 720 meals per day, houses 212 men, 78 women, and 13 families each night, provides an average of about 790 emergency food baskets each month to local families in crisis, 9,000 hot showers a month, clean clothes and so much more.
With multiple casino closings, the Rescue Mission is expecting to see an increased number of meals and community food baskets given to the hungry and homeless population of Atlantic County. Your help is needed now more than ever. Any gift you are able to give is a blessing!
During the Convention, a drop-off box will be located at the Messages & Information Desk at the Trade Expo entrance (Level 2, Hall B).
