Kathy Fernandez, coordinator of the JFSCNJ Charlotte Shak Kosher Food Pantry, received a surprise call from Christopher Rueda of Truck and Go LLC of Roselle Park. The call led to a donation of 54 cases of oranges. Mr. Rueda asked his company for advice when he realized he had a surplus of oranges after he finished his tristate-area deliveries, and the staff at Truck and Go asked the JFSCNJ Food Pantry if it could accept the donation. When they got the answer — yes! — Mr. Rueda asked his brother, Hector Rueda, to help unload the 54 cases of oranges. The brothers spent more than two hours of heavy lifting to unload the oranges donated by Truck and Go LLC.
The oranges were distributed to the JFSCNJ Food Pantry clients and to local Union County food pantries, Ms. Fernandez said.
